2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat JBoss EAP 6.4 for RHEL 6 - noarch

3. Description:

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java
applications based on JBoss Application Server 7.

It was discovered that sending requests containing large headers to the Web
Console produced a Java OutOfMemoryError in the HTTP management interface.
An attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2015-5220)

It was discovered that the EAP Management Console could be opened in an
IFRAME, which made it possible to intercept and manipulate requests.
An attacker could use this flaw to trick a user into performing arbitrary
actions in the Console (clickjacking). (CVE-2015-5178)

Note: Resolving this issue required a change in the way http requests are
sent in the Console; this change may affect users. See the Release Notes
linked to in the References section for details about this change.

It was discovered that when uploading a file using a multipart/form-data
submission to the EAP Web Console, the Console was vulnerable to Cross-Site
Request Forgery (CSRF). This meant that an attacker could use the flaw
together with a forgery attack to make changes to an authenticated
instance. (CVE-2015-5188)

The CVE-2015-5220 issue was discovered by Aaron Ogburn of Red Hat GSS
Middleware Team, and the CVE-2015-5188 issue was discovered by Jason Greene
of the Red Hat Middleware Engineering Team.

Compute Cloud (EC2). With this update, the packages have been updated to
ensure compatibility with Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform
6.4.4. Documentation for these changes is available from the link in the
