(RHSA-2013:1853) Moderate: Red Hat JBoss Operations Network 3.2.0 update


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. This JBoss Operations Network 3.2.0 release serves as a replacement for JBoss Operations Network 3.1.2, and includes several bug fixes. Refer to the JBoss Operations Network 3.2.0 Release Notes for information on the most significant of these changes. The Release Notes will be available shortly from https://access.redhat.com/site/documentation/ The following security issues are also fixed with this release: It was found that sending a request without a session identifier to a protected resource could bypass the Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) prevention filter. A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform CSRF attacks against applications that rely on the CSRF prevention filter and do not contain internal mitigation for CSRF. (CVE-2012-4431) The Jakarta Commons HttpClient component did not verify that the server hostname matched the domain name in the subject's Common Name (CN) or subjectAltName field in X.509 certificates. This could allow a man-in-the-middle attacker to spoof an SSL server if they had a certificate that was valid for any domain name. (CVE-2012-5783) A flaw was found in the way Apache Santuario XML Security for Java validated XML signatures. Santuario allowed a signature to specify an arbitrary canonicalization algorithm, which would be applied to the SignedInfo XML fragment. A remote attacker could exploit this to spoof an XML signature via a specially crafted XML signature block. (CVE-2013-2172) Warning: Before applying the update, back up your existing JBoss Operations Network installation (including its databases, applications, configuration files, the JBoss Operations Network server's file system directory, and so on). All users of JBoss Operations Network 3.1.2 as provided from the Red Hat Customer Portal are advised to upgrade to JBoss Operations Network 3.2.0.
