An update is now available for Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of
Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a
detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE
link(s) in the References section.

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 6.4.4 serves as a replacement for Red
Hat JBoss BPM Suite 6.4.3, 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 GZIPInterceptor is enabled when not necessarily required in
RESTEasy. An attacker could use this flaw to launch a Denial of Service attack.

* It was discovered that under certain conditions RESTEasy could be forced to
parse a request with YamlProvider, resulting in unmarshalling of potentially
untrusted data. An attacker could possibly use this flaw execute arbitrary code
with the permissions of the application using RESTEasy. (CVE-2016-9606)

* It was found that logback is vulnerable to a deserialization issue. Logback
can be configured to allow remote logging through
SocketServer/ServerSocketReceiver interfaces that can accept untrusted
serialized data. Authenticated attackers on the adjacent network can leverage
this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code through deserialization of custom
gadget chains. (CVE-2017-5929)

Red Hat would like to thank Mikhail Egorov (Odin) for reporting CVE-2016-6346
and Moritz Bechler (AgNO3 GmbH & Co. KG) for reporting CVE-2016-9606.
