Description

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java applications based on JBoss Application Server 7.

A flaw was discovered in the way authenticated connections were cached on the server by remote-naming. After a user has successfully logged in, a remote attacker could use a remoting client to log in as that user without knowing their password, allowing them to access data and perform actions with the privileges of that user. (CVE-2013-4128)

A flaw was discovered in the way connections for remote EJB invocations via the EJB client API were cached on the server. After a user has successfully logged in, a remote attacker could use an EJB client to log in as that user without knowing their password, allowing them to access data and perform actions with the privileges of that user. (CVE-2013-4213)

These issues were discovered by Wolf-Dieter Fink of the Red Hat GSS Team.

Warning: Before applying this update, back up your existing Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform installation and deployed applications.

All users of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.1.0 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages. The JBoss server process must be restarted for the update to take effect.
