Type: Security Advisory
Severity: Low
Issued on: 2010-12-08

Details

Updated JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.1 packages that fix one
security issue and various bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 4.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having low
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

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.

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 this
issue.

These updated packages include multiple bug fixes. Documentation for these
bug fixes will be available shortly from the Release Notes, linked to in
the References section.

As well, this update adds a new jbossws-cxf package to JBoss Enterprise
Application Platform 5.1.0, to provide the sources for jbossws-cxf.
(BZ#644403)

Warning: Before applying this update, please backup the JBoss Enterprise
Application Platform "jboss-as/server/$PROFILE/deploy/" directory, along
with all other customized configuration files.

All users of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.0 on Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages. The
JBoss server process must be restarted for the update to take effect.
