The following security issues are also fixed with this release:
It was found that Apache Camel's XML converter performed XML External
Entity (XXE) expansion. A remote attacker able to submit an SAXSource
containing an XXE declaration could use this flaw to read files accessible
to the user running the application server, and potentially perform other
more advanced XXE attacks. (CVE-2015-0263)
It was found that Apache Camel performed XML External Entity (XXE)
expansion when evaluating invalid XML Strings or invalid XML GenericFile
objects. A remote attacker able to submit a crafted XML message could use
this flaw to read files accessible to the user running the application
server, and potentially perform other more advanced XXE attacks.
A flaw was found in the dashbuilder import facility: the DocumentBuilders
instantiated in org.jboss.dashboard.export.ImportManagerImpl did not
disable external entities. This could allow an attacker to perform a
variety of XML External Entity (XXE) and Server-Side Request Forgery (SSRF)
Red Hat would like to thank David Jorm of IIX Product Security for
