1. Summary:

Updated jbossas packages that fix one security issue are now available for
JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 4.2.0.CP09 for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 4 and 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important 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.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 4.2.0 for RHEL 4 AS - noarch
JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 4.2.0 for RHEL 4 ES - noarch
JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 4.2.0 for RHEL 5 Server - noarch

3. Description:

JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is the market-leading platform for
innovative and scalable Java applications. JBoss Enterprise Application
Platform integrates the JBoss Application Server with JBoss Hibernate and
JBoss Seam into a complete and simple enterprise solution. JBoss Web
Services Native is a web service framework included as part of JBoss
Enterprise Application Platform. It implements the JAX-WS specification.

It was found that JBoss Web Services Native did not properly protect
against recursive entity resolution when processing Document Type
Definitions (DTD). A remote attacker could exploit this flaw by sending a
specially-crafted HTTP POST request to a deployed web service, causing
excessive CPU and memory consumption on the system hosting that service. If
the attack is repeated to consume all available network sockets, the server
will become unavailable. (CVE-2011-1483)

Warning: Before applying this update, please back up your JBoss Enterprise
Application Platform's "server/[configuration]/deploy/" directory, along
with all other customized configuration files.

Users of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 4.2.0.CP09 on Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4 and 5 should upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct this issue. The JBoss server process must be restarted for this
update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
