Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java applications based on JBoss Application Server 7.
It was found that a prior countermeasure in Apache WSS4J for Bleichenbacher's attack on XML Encryption (CVE-2011-2487) threw an exception that permitted an attacker to determine the failure of the attempted attack, thereby leaving WSS4J vulnerable to the attack. The original flaw allowed a remote attacker to recover the entire plain text form of a symmetric key. (CVE-2015-0226)
It was found that Apache WSS4J permitted bypass of the requireSignedEncryptedDataElements configuration property via XML Signature wrapping attacks. A remote attacker could use this flaw to modify the contents of a signed request. (CVE-2015-0227)
It was discovered that a JkUnmount rule for a subtree of a previous JkMount rule could be ignored. This could allow a remote attacker to potentially access a private artifact in a tree that would otherwise not be accessible to them. (CVE-2014-8111)
A flaw was found in the way PicketLink's Service Provider and Identity Provider handled certain requests. A remote attacker could use this flaw to log to a victim's account via PicketLink. (CVE-2015-0277)
It was found that the Command Line Interface, as provided by Red Hat Enterprise Application Platform, created a history file named .jboss-cli-history in the user's home directory with insecure default file permissions. This could allow a malicious local user to gain information otherwise not accessible to them. (CVE-2014-3586)
The CVE-2015-0277 issue was discovered by Ondrej Kotek of Red Hat.
This release of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform also includes bug fixes and enhancements. Documentation for these changes will be available shortly from the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.4.0 Release Notes, linked to in the References.
