Description

The GUI installer in JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) and Enterprise Web Platform (EWP) 5.2.0 and possibly 5.1.2 uses world-readable permissions for the auto-install XML file, which allows local users to obtain the administrator password and the sucker password by reading this file.
