medium Nessus Plugin ID 72238
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Red Hat host is missing a security update.


The version of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform installed on the remote system is affected by the following issues :

- Flaws in the mod_info, mod_status, mod_imagemap, mod_ldap, and mod_proxy_ftp modules can allow an attacker to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.

- Flaws in the web interface of the mod_proxy_balancer module can allow a remote attacker to perform XSS attacks. (CVE-2012-4558)

- A flaw in mod_rewrite can allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands via an HTTP request containing an escape sequence for a terminal emulator.

- A flaw in the method by which the mod_dav module handles merge requests can allow an attacker to create a denial of service by sending a crafted merge request that contains URIs that are not configured for DAV.

- A flaw in PicketBox can allow local users to obtain the admin encryption key by reading the Vault data file.

- A flaw in Apache Santuario XML Security can allow context-dependent attackers to spoof an XML Signature by using the CanonicalizationMethod parameter to specify an arbitrary weak algorithm. (CVE-2013-2172)

- A flaw in JGroup's DiagnosticsHandler can allow remote attackers to obtain sensitive information and execute arbitrary code by re-using valid credentials.


Upgrade the installed JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.1.0 to 6.1.1 or later.
