Red Hat Security Advisory
Synopsis: Moderate: JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.3.0 security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2012:1152-01
Product: JBoss Enterprise Middleware
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-1152.html
Issue date: 2012-08-08
CVE Names: CVE-2011-2908
An update for the JMX Console in JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.3.0 that
fixes one security issue is now available from the Red Hat Customer Portal.
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.
JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform is the next-generation ESB and business
process automation infrastructure. JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform allows IT
to leverage existing (MoM and EAI), modern (SOA and BPM-Rules), and future
(EDA and CEP) integration methodologies to dramatically improve business
process execution speed and quality.
It was found that the JMX Console did not protect against Cross-Site
Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks. If a remote attacker could trick a user,
who was logged into the JMX Console, into visiting a specially-crafted URL,
the attacker could perform operations on MBeans, which may lead to
arbitrary code execution in the context of the JBoss server process.
All users of JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.3.0 as provided from the Red
Hat Customer Portal are advised to install this update.
The References section of this erratum contains a download link (you must
log in to download the update). Before applying the update, back up your
existing JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform installation (including its
databases, applications, configuration files, and so on).
Note that it is recommended to halt the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform
server by stopping the JBoss Application Server process before installing
this update, and then after installing the update, restart the JBoss
Enterprise SOA Platform server by starting the JBoss Application Server
