Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

An update is now available for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application
Platform 7.0 for RHEL 7.

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

This release of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7.0.4
serves as a replacement for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application
Platform 7.0.3, and includes bug fixes and enhancements, which are
documented in the Release Notes, linked to in the References section.

Security Fix(es) :

* An EAP feature to download server log files allows logs to be
available via GET requests making them vulnerable to cross-origin
attacks. An attacker could trigger the user's browser to request the
log files consuming enough resources that normal server functioning
could be impaired. (CVE-2016-8627)

* It was discovered that when configuring RBAC and marking information
as sensitive, users with a Monitor role are able to view the sensitive
information. (CVE-2016-7061)

The CVE-2016-8627 issue was discovered by Darran Lofthouse and Brian
Stansberry (Red Hat).
