JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform is the open source implementation of the
Java EE suite of services and Portal services running atop JBoss Enterprise
Application Platform. It comprises a set of offerings for enterprise
customers who are looking for pre-configured profiles of JBoss Enterprise
Middleware components that have been tested and certified together to
provide an integrated experience.

attacker-controlled URL, the attacker could perform actions with the
privileges of the logged in user. (CVE-2012-3532)

These issues were discovered by Trevor Jay of Red Hat Quality Engineering
penetration testing.
