3. Description:

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is a platform for Java
applications, which integrates the JBoss Application Server with JBoss
Hibernate and JBoss Seam.

It was found that the implementation of the
org.picketlink.common.util.DocumentUtil.getDocumentBuilderFactory() method
provided a DocumentBuilderFactory that would expand entity references.
A remote, unauthenticated attacker could use this flaw to read files
accessible to the user running the application server, and potentially
perform other more advanced XXE attacks. (CVE-2014-3530)

Red Hat would like to thank Alexander Papadakis for reporting this issue.

All users of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.2.0 on Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 4, 5, and 6 are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages. The JBoss server process must be restarted for the update to take
effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied. Also, back up your existing Red
Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5 installation (including all
