Description :

Updated jboss-ec2-eap packages that add one enhancement and resolve
one security issue are now available for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise
Application Platform 6.4.6 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java
EE applications. It is based on JBoss Application Server 7 and
incorporates multiple open-source projects to provide a complete Java
EE platform solution.

It was found that the Java Standard Tag Library (JSTL) allowed the
processing of untrusted XML documents to utilize external entity
references, which could access resources on the host system and,
potentially, allowing arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-0254)

Note: Tag Library users may need to take additional steps after
applying this update. Detailed instructions on the additional steps
can be found here: https://access.redhat.com/solutions/1584363

Red Hat would like to thank David Jorm of IIX, and the Apache Software
Foundation for reporting the CVE-2015-0254 flaw.

* The jboss-ec2-eap packages provide scripts for Red Hat JBoss
Enterprise Application Platform running on the Amazon Web Services
(AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). With this update, the packages have
been updated to ensure compatibility with Red Hat JBoss Enterprise
Application Platform 6.4.6.

All users of EAP 6.4.5 jboss-ec2-eap are advised to upgrade to these
updated packages.
