Description

Updated packages that provide Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.3.2 and fix one security issue, several bugs, and add various enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java applications based on JBoss Application Server 7.

A resource consumption issue was found in the way Xerces-J handled XML declarations. A remote attacker could use an XML document with a specially crafted declaration using a long pseudo-attribute name that, when parsed by an application using Xerces-J, would cause that application to use an excessive amount of CPU. (CVE-2013-4002)

This release of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform also includes bug fixes and enhancements. A list of these changes is available from the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.3.2 Downloads page on the Customer Portal.

All users of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.3 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages. The JBoss server process must be restarted for the update to take effect.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
