The following security issue is also fixed with this release:

It was found that the Java hashCode() method implementation was susceptible
to predictable hash collisions. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
cause the Jetty HTTP server (a component of Apache Karaf, used by Fuse
Management Console) to use an excessive amount of CPU time by sending an
HTTP request with a large number of parameters whose names map to the same
hash value. This update introduces a limit of 1000 on the number of
parameters processed per request to mitigate this issue. (CVE-2011-4461)

Red Hat would like to thank oCERT for reporting this issue. oCERT

All users of Fuse Management Console 1.0.2 as provided from the Red Hat
