Description

Updated packages for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.2.0 that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5, and 6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate 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.

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is a platform for Java applications, which integrates the JBoss Application Server with JBoss Hibernate and JBoss Seam.

It was discovered that the Apache Santuario XML Security for Java project allowed Document Type Definitions (DTDs) to be processed when applying Transforms even when secure validation was enabled. A remote attacker could use this flaw to exhaust all available memory on the system, causing a denial of service. (CVE-2013-4517)

All users of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.2.0 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4, 5, and 6 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages. The JBoss server process must be restarted for the update to take effect.
