How do I resolve CVE-2017-12149 on EAP 5?


According to CVE-2017-12149:

Secure the access to the entire http-invoker contexts by adding <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern> to the security-constraints in the web.xml file of the http-invoker.sar. The users who do not wish to use the http-invoker.sar can remove it.

Based on CVE-2017-12149, there are two options:

  1. Remove server/$PROFILE/deploy/http-invoker.sar;

  2. Protect all of the http-invoker web application by adding the /* url pattern to the security-constraint in server/$PROFILE/deploy/http-invoker.sar/invoker.war/WEB-INF/web.xml (see FIXME comment below)

             <description>An example security config that only allows users with the
                role HttpInvoker to access the HTTP invoker servlets
             <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>  <!-- FIXME:  add this line -->
