Red Hat JBoss Operations Network is a middleware management solution that provides a single point of control to deploy, manage, and monitor JBoss Enterprise Middleware, applications, and services.

A flaw was found in the way the DiskFileItem class handled NULL characters in file names. A remote attacker able to supply a serialized instance of the DiskFileItem class, which will be deserialized on a server, could use this flaw to write arbitrary content to any location on the server that is accessible to the user running the application server process. (CVE-2013-2186)

A denial of service flaw was found in the implementation of the org.jboss.remoting.transport.socket.ServerThread class in JBoss Remoting. An attacker could use this flaw to exhaust all available file descriptors on the target server, preventing legitimate connections. Note that to exploit this flaw remotely, the remoting port must be exposed directly or indirectly (for example, deploying a public facing application that uses JBoss Remoting could indirectly expose this flaw). (CVE-2013-4210)

It was found that the JBoss Operations Network server exposed configured passwords in plain text in its log files by default. A local user with access to these log files could use the exposed credentials. (CVE-2013-4293)

A flaw was found in the way JPADriftServerBean instances stored drift files. The storeFiles method created a predictable temporary directory when unpacking a zip file. Once a zip file was extracted to the temporary directory, all files in this directory were stored. A local attacker could provide their own drift files to be imported into the server instance. (CVE-2013-4373)

The CVE-2013-4293 was discovered by Larry O'Leary of the Red Hat Middleware Support Engineering Group, and CVE-2013-4210 was discovered by James Livingston of the Red Hat Support Engineering Group.
