Red Hat has issued an update for JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. This fixes multiple security issues and vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to gain escalated privileges, by malicious users to disclose sensitive information and by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions.
1) An error when handling method invocations in the "processInvocation()" method (org.jboss.as.ejb3.security.AuthorizationInterceptor) with an empty list of allowed roles can be exploited to get otherwise restricted method invocations authorised.
2) An error when handling role-based authorisation for Enterprise Java Beans (EJB) access can be exploited to e.g. bypass a configured JACC authorisation module.
Solution: Updated packages are available via Red Hat Network.
