SynopsisThe remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.2.0 packages that fix two security issues, several bugs, and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.
Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java applications based on JBoss Application Server 7.
The HawtJNI Library class wrote native libraries to a predictable file name in /tmp/ when the native libraries were bundled in a JAR file, and no custom library path was specified. A local attacker could overwrite these native libraries with malicious versions during the window between when HawtJNI writes them and when they are executed.
A flaw was found in the way method-level authorization for JAX-WS Service endpoints was performed by the EJB invocation handler implementation. Any restrictions declared on EJB methods were ignored when executing the JAX-WS handlers, and only class-level restrictions were applied. A remote attacker who is authorized to access the EJB class, could invoke a JAX-WS handler which they were not authorized to invoke. (CVE-2013-2133)
The CVE-2013-2035 issue was discovered by Florian Weimer of the Red Hat Product Security Team, and the CVE-2013-2133 issue was discovered by Richard Opalka and Arun Neelicattu of Red Hat.
