New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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 Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. 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.

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

This release of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7.0.7 serves as a replacement for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7.0.6, and includes bug fixes and enhancements, which are documented in the Release Notes linked to in the References.

Security Fix(es) :

* A deserialization flaw was discovered in jackson-databind which could allow an unauthenticated user to perform code execution by sending maliciously crafted input to the readValue method of the ObjectMapper. (CVE-2017-7525)

* It was found that use of a JMS ObjectMessage does not safely handle user-supplied data when deserializing objects. A remote attacker could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the application using the JMS ObjectMessage. (CVE-2016-4978)

Red Hat would like to thank Liao Xinxi (NSFOCUS) for reporting CVE-2017-7525.

Solution
