Red Hat has issued an update for JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and JBoss Enterprise Web Platform. This fixes a weakness, a security issue, and multiple vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious, local users to disclose potentially sensitive information, by malicious users to bypass certain security restrictions, and by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting and request forgery attacks and bypass certain security restrictions.
1) Certain input related to operation invocations passed to the JMX console is not properly sanitised before being returned to the user. This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.
2) An error within the "SecurityAssociation.getCredential()" function when handling a request without a SecurityContext to a secured back-end resource can be exploited to authenticate as the previously authenticated user.
3) An error in the JMX Invoker due to the AuthorizationInterceptor not properly verifying permissions can be exploited to perform otherwise restricted JMX operations.
Solution: Updated packages are available via Red Hat Network.
