Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform is the next-generation ESB and business process automation infrastructure. Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform allows IT to leverage existing (MoM and EAI), modern (SOA and BPM-Rules), and future (EDA and CEP) integration methodologies to dramatically improve business process execution speed and quality.
This roll up patch serves as a cumulative upgrade for Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform 5.3.1. It includes various bug fixes. The following security issues are also fixed with this release:
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)
It was discovered that the Spring OXM wrapper did not expose any property for disabling entity resolution when using the JAXB unmarshaller. A remote attacker could use this flaw to conduct XML External Entity (XXE) attacks on web sites, and read files in the context of the user running the application server. The patch for this flaw disables external entity processing by default, and provides a configuration directive to re-enable it. (CVE-2013-4152)
Warning: Before applying the update, back up your existing Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform installation (including its databases, applications, configuration files, and so on).
All users of Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform 5.3.1 as provided from the Red Hat Customer Portal are advised to apply this roll up patch.
