Description

The Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization reports package provides a suite of pre-configured reports and dashboards that enable you to monitor the system. The reports module is based on JasperReports and JasperServer, and can also be used to create ad-hoc reports.

XStream is a simple library used by the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization reports package to serialize and de-serialize objects to and from XML.

It was found that XStream could deserialize arbitrary user-supplied XML content, representing objects of any type. A remote attacker able to pass XML to XStream could use this flaw to perform a variety of attacks, including remote code execution in the context of the server running the XStream application. (CVE-2013-7285)

All jasperreports-server-pro users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which contains a backported patch to correct this issue.
