=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for the GateIn Portal component in JBoss Enterprise Portal
Platform 5.2.2 that fixes two security issues is now available from the
Red Hat Customer Portal.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important security
impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give
detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the
CVE links in the References section.

2. Description:

JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform is the open source implementation of the
Java EE suite of services and Portal services running atop JBoss Enterprise
Application Platform. It comprises a set of offerings for enterprise
customers who are looking for pre-configured profiles of JBoss Enterprise
Middleware components that have been tested and certified together to
provide an integrated experience.

It was found that XStream could deserialize arbitrary user-supplied XML
content, representing objects of any type. A remote attacker able to pass
XML to XStream could use this flaw to perform a variety of attacks,
including remote code execution in the context of the server running the
XStream application. (CVE-2013-7285)

It was found that the secure processing feature of Xalan-Java had
insufficient restrictions defined for certain properties and features.
A remote attacker able to provide Extensible Stylesheet Language
Transformations (XSLT) content to be processed by an application using
Xalan-Java could use this flaw to bypass the intended constraints of the
secure processing feature. Depending on the components available in the
classpath, this could lead to arbitrary remote code execution in the
context of the application server running the application that uses
Xalan-Java. (CVE-2014-0107)

All users of JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform 5.2.2 as provided from the
Red Hat Customer Portal are advised to install this update.

3. Solution:

The References section of this erratum contains a download link (you must
log in to download the update). Before applying the update, back up all
applications deployed on JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform, along with all
customized configuration files, and any databases and database settings.

Note that it is recommended to halt the JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform
server by stopping the JBoss Application Server process before installing
this update, and then after installing the update, restart the JBoss
Enterprise Portal Platform server by starting the JBoss Application Server
process.
