Bugzilla: 802200: CVE-2012-1154 mod_cluster registers and exposes the root context of a server by default, despite ROOT being in the excluded-contexts list

Details

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

mod_cluster 1.0.10 before 1.0.10 CP03 and 1.1.x before 1.1.4, as used in JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.1.2, when "ROOT" is set to excludedContexts, exposes the root context of the server, which allows remote attackers to bypass access restrictions and gain access to applications deployed on the root context via unspecified vectors.
