JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is the market leading platform for innovative and scalable Java applications; integrating the JBoss Application Server, with JBoss Hibernate and JBoss Seam into a complete, simple enterprise solution. This release of JBEAP for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 serves as a replacement to JBEAP 4.3.0.CP08. These updated packages include multiple bug fixes which are detailed in the Release Notes. The Release Notes will be available shortly from the link in the References section. The following security issues are also fixed with this release: An input sanitization flaw was found in the way JBoss Drools implemented certain rule base serialization. If a remote attacker supplied specially-crafted input to a JBoss Seam based application that accepts serialized input, it could lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the JBoss server process. (CVE-2010-3708) A Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) flaw was found in the JMX Console. A remote attacker could use this flaw to deploy a WAR file of their choosing on the target server, if they are able to trick a user, who is logged into the JMX Console as the admin user, into visiting a specially-crafted web page. (CVE-2010-3878) A flaw was found in the JBoss Remoting component. A remote attacker could use specially-crafted input to cause the JBoss Remoting listeners to become unresponsive, resulting in a denial of service condition for services communicating via JBoss Remoting sockets. (CVE-2010-3862) Red Hat would like to thank Ole Husgaard of eXerp.com for reporting the CVE-2010-3862 issue. Warning: Before applying this update, please backup the JBEAP "server/[configuration]/deploy/" directory, and any other customized configuration files. All users of JBEAP 4.3 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages.
