Security Advisory: Important
An update for Red Hat JBoss Operations Network 3.2.1, which fixes two
security issues, is now available from the Red Hat Customer Portal.
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
Important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each
vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.
Red Hat JBoss Operations Network is a middleware management solution that
provides a single point of control to deploy, manage, and monitor JBoss
Enterprise Middleware, applications, and services.
Apache Struts is a framework for building web applications with Java.
It was found that the Struts 1 ActionForm object allowed access to the
'class' parameter, which is directly mapped to the getClass() method. A
remote attacker could use this flaw to manipulate the ClassLoader used by
an application server running Struts 1. This could lead to remote code
execution under certain conditions. (CVE-2014-0114)
It was found that when JBoss Web processed a series of HTTP requests in
which at least one request contained either multiple content-length
headers, or one content-length header with a chunked transfer-encoding
header, JBoss Web would incorrectly handle the request. A remote attacker
could use this flaw to poison a web cache, perform cross-site scripting
(XSS) attacks, or obtain sensitive information from other requests.
All users of JBoss Operations Network 3.2.1 as provided from the Red Hat
Customer Portal are advised to apply this update.
