Description

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java applications based on JBoss Application Server 7.

It was discovered that the Apache CXF incorrectly extracted the host name from an X.509 certificate subject's Common Name (CN) field. A man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to spoof an SSL server using a specially crafted X.509 certificate. (CVE-2012-6153, CVE-2014-3577)

It was found that Apache WSS4J (Web Services Security for Java), as used by Apache CXF with the TransportBinding, did not, by default, properly enforce all security requirements associated with SAML SubjectConfirmation methods. A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform various types of spoofing attacks on web service endpoints secured by WSS4j that rely on SAML for authentication. (CVE-2014-3623)

The CVE-2012-6153 issue was discovered by Florian Weimer of Red Hat Product Security.

All users of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.3.2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, and 7 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages. The JBoss server process must be restarted for the update to take effect.
