Description

Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite is a business rules and processes management system for the management, storage, creation, modification, and deployment of JBoss rules and BPMN2-compliant business processes.

This release of Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite 6.4.1 serves as a replacement for Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite 6.4.0, and includes bug fixes and enhancements, which are documented in the Release Notes document linked to in the References.

Security Fix(es):

  • It was found that the parsing of XMP and other XML formats in PDF by Apache PDFBox would expand entity references. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could use this flaw to read files accessible to the user running the application server, and potentially perform other more advanced XXE attacks. (CVE-2016-2175)

  • It was found that the parsing of OOXML, XMP in PDF, and some other file formats by Apache Tika would expand entity references. A remote, unauthenticated attacker could use this flaw to read files accessible to the user running the application server, and potentially perform other more advanced XXE attacks. (CVE-2016-4434)

  • It was discovered that JBoss BRMS 6 and BPM Suite 6 are not setting HttpOnly flags on sensitive cookies. Remote attackers can access these cookies by using client-side scripts, usually through XSS. Please note that on IBM WebSphere the HttpOnly flag cannot be set by deployed applications, it needs to be configured directly on WAS console. (CVE-2016-6344)

  • JBoss BRMS 6 and BPM Suite 6 are vulnerable to a stored XSS via dashbuilder. Remote, authenticated attackers that have privileges to access dashbuilder (usually admins) can store scripts in several editable fields, which are not properly sanitized before showing to other users, including other admins. (CVE-2016-7033)

The CVE-2016-6344 and CVE-2016-7033 issues were discovered by Jeremy Choi (Red Hat Product Security Team).
