RHSA-2008:0151: JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 4.2.0CP02 security update



Updated JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBEAP) packages that fix several security issues are now available. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBEAP) is a middleware platform for Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications. This release of JBEAP for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 contains the JBoss Application Server and JBoss Seam. This release serves as a replacement to JBEAP 4.2.0.GA. It fixes several security issues: The JFreeChart component was vulnerable to multiple cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities. An attacker could misuse the image map feature to inject arbitrary web script, or HTML, via several attributes of the chart area. (CVE-2007-6306) A vulnerability caused by exposing static Java methods was located within the HSQLDB component. This could be utilized by an attacker to execute arbitrary static Java methods. (CVE-2007-4575) The setOrder method in the org.jboss.seam.framework.Query class did not correctly validate user-supplied parameters. This vulnerability allowed remote attackers to inject, and execute, arbitrary Enterprise JavaBeans Query Language (EJB QL) commands via the order parameter. (CVE-2007-6433) These updated packages include bug fixes and enhancements which are not listed here. For a full list, please refer to the JBEAP 4.2.0CP02 release notes: http://redhat.com/docs/manuals/jboss/jboss-eap-4.2.0.cp02/readme.html Warning: before applying this update, please backup the JBEAP "server/[configuration]/deploy/" directory, and any other customized configuration files. All users of JBEAP on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
