Hi guys.

I am an IT Security analyst in Canberra, Australia.

I recently encountered an issue with jboss, which led me to do some Google

The search will pull up around 41500 results. Click on any of the links
and you will gain access to the backend app (ie start/stop services,
modify data,etc). I do not know if this will work in all cases, however I
would recommend a good deal of caution if you do follow any of the links.

Please let me know if you need any further info - I have nfi who to
actually contact as auscert has no vulnerability reporting option and this
is a first for me...

Ben Dexter.
