Synopsis

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

Description

New JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBEAP) packages, comprising the 4.2.0.CP02 release, are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

JBEAP is a middleware platform for Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications.

This release of JBEAP for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 contains the JBoss Application Server and JBoss Seam and serves as a replacement for JBEAP 4.2.0.GA_CP01. As well as fixing numerous bugs and adding enhancements, these updated packages addresses several security issues.

The JFreeChart component was vulnerable to multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities. An attacker could misuse the image map feature to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via several attributes of the chart area. (CVE-2007-6306)

A vulnerability caused by exposing static java methods was located within the HSQLDB component. This could be utilized by an attacker to execute arbitrary static java methods. (CVE-2007-4575)

The setOrder method in the org.jboss.seam.framework.Query class did not properly validate user-supplied parameters. This vulnerability allowed remote attackers to inject and execute arbitrary EJBQL commands via the order parameter. (CVE-2007-6433)

For details regarding the bug fixes and enhancements included with this update, please see the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 4.2.0.CP02 Release Notes, linked to in the References section below.

All Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 users wanting to use the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform are advised to install these new packages.
