Synopsis

The remote Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform installation is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) installed on the remote host is 7.x prior to 7.2.5. It is therefore, affected my multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2019:4021 advisory:

- undertow: HTTP/2: large amount of data requests leads to denial of service (CVE-2019-9511)

- undertow: HTTP/2: flood using PING frames results in unbounded memory growth (CVE-2019-9512)

Update to Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7.2.5 or later.
