standards and compliant with the Java EE 7 specification.
This release serves as a replacement for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise
Application Platform 7.0.1. It includes bug fixes and enhancements.
Refer to the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7.0.2 Release Notes
linked to in the References section for information about the most
significant bug fixes and enhancements included in this release.
Security Fix(es) :
* 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)
* It was reported that EAP 7 Application Server/Undertow web server is
vulnerable to the injection of arbitrary HTTP headers, and also
response splitting, due to insufficient sanitization and validation of
user input before the input is used as part of an HTTP header value.
* The domain controller will not propagate its administrative RBAC
configuration to some slaves. An attacker could use this to escalate
their privileges. (CVE-2016-5406)
Red Hat would like to thank Calum Hutton (NCC Group) and Mikhail
Egorov (Odin) for reporting CVE-2016-4993. The CVE-2016-5406 issue was
