Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java
applications based on JBoss Application Server 7.

The following security issue is addressed with this release :

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
