Description

Red Hat JBoss Fuse, based on Apache ServiceMix, provides a small-footprint, flexible, open source enterprise service bus and integration platform. Red Hat JBoss A-MQ, based on Apache ActiveMQ, is a standards compliant messaging system that is tailored for use in mission critical applications.

This patch is an update to Red Hat JBoss Fuse 6.1.0 and Red Hat JBoss A-MQ 6.1.0. It includes bug fixes and enhancements, which are documented in the readme.txt file included with the patch files. The following security issues are addressed in this release:

It was discovered that Apache Shiro authenticated users without specifying a user name or a password when used in conjunction with an LDAP back end that allowed unauthenticated binds. (CVE-2014-0074)

It was found that the secure processing feature of Xalan-Java had insufficient restrictions defined for certain properties and features. A remote attacker able to provide Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT) content to be processed by an application using Xalan-Java could use this flaw to bypass the intended constraints of the secure processing feature. Depending on the components available in the classpath, this could lead to arbitrary remote code execution in the context of the application server running the application that uses Xalan-Java. (CVE-2014-0107)

It was found that the SecurityTokenService (STS), provided as a part of Apache CXF, could under certain circumstances accept invalid SAML tokens as valid. A remote attacker could use a specially crafted SAML token to gain access to an application that uses STS for validation of SAML tokens. (CVE-2014-0034)

A denial of service flaw was found in the way Apache CXF created error messages for certain POST requests. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted request which, when processed by an application using Apache CXF, could consume an excessive amount of memory on the system, possibly triggering an Out Of Memory (OOM) error. (CVE-2014-0109)

It was found that when a large invalid SOAP message was processed by Apache CXF, it could be saved to a temporary file in the /tmp directory. A remote attacker could send a specially crafted SOAP message that, when processed by an application using Apache CXF, would use an excessive amount of disk space, possibly causing a denial of service. (CVE-2014-0110)

It was found that Jolokia was vulnerable to Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks. A remote attacker could provide a specially crafted web page that, when visited by a user logged in to Jolokia, could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary methods on MBeans exposed via JMX. (CVE-2014-0168)

It was found that the Spring Framework did not, by default, disable the resolution of URI references in a DTD declaration when processing user-provided XML documents. By observing differences in response times, an attacker could identify valid IP addresses on the internal network with functioning web servers. (CVE-2014-0225)

It was discovered that UsernameTokens were sent in plain text by an Apache CXF client that used a Symmetric EncryptBeforeSigning password policy. A man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to obtain the user name and password used by the client application using Apache CXF. (CVE-2014-0035)

A flaw was found in the WebSocket08FrameDecoder implementation that could allow a remote attacker to trigger an Out Of Memory Exception by issuing a series of TextWebSocketFrame and ContinuationWebSocketFrames. Depending on the server configuration, this could lead to a denial of service. (CVE-2014-0193)

Refer to the readme.txt file included with the patch files for installation instructions.

Red Hat would like to thank James Roper of Typesafe for reporting the CVE-2014-0193 issue.

All users of Red Hat JBoss Fuse 6.1.0 and Red Hat JBoss A-MQ 6.1.0 as provided from the Red Hat Customer Portal are advised to apply this security update.
