Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java EE applications. It is based on JBoss Application Server 7 and incorporates multiple open-source projects to provide a complete Java EE platform solution.

Security Fix(es):

  • A denial of service vulnerability was identified in Commons FileUpload that occurred when the length of the multipart boundary was just below the size of the buffer (4096 bytes) used to read the uploaded file if the boundary was the typical tens of bytes long. (CVE-2016-3092)


  • The jboss-ec2-eap packages provide scripts for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform running on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). With this update, the packages have been updated to ensure compatibility with Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.4.11.

Users of EAP 6.4.10 jboss-ec2-eap are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
