Description

The AuthorizationInterceptor in JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) before 5.2.0, Web Platform (EWP) before 5.2.0, BRMS Platform before 5.3.1, and SOA Platform before 5.3.1 does not properly restrict access, which allows remote authenticated users to bypass intended role restrictions and perform arbitrary JMX operations via unspecified vectors.
