Security Fix(es):

  • A Denial of Service can be caused when a long request is sent to EAP 7. (CVE-2016-7046)

  • The jboss init script unsafe file handling resulting in local privilege escalation. (CVE-2016-8656)

  • A deserialization vulnerability via readValue method of ObjectMapper which allows arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2017-7525)

  • JMSObjectMessage deserializes potentially malicious objects allowing Remote Code Execution. (CVE-2016-4978)

  • Undertow is vulnerable to the injection of arbitrary HTTP headers, and also response splitting. (CVE-2016-4993)

  • The domain controller will not propagate its administrative RBAC configuration to some slaves leading to escalate their privileges. (CVE-2016-5406)

  • Properties based files of the management and the application realm are world readable allowing access to users and roles information to all the users logged in to the system. (CVE-2017-12167)
