1. Summary:

An update is now available for Red Hat JBoss Web Server 3.1.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Description:

Red Hat JBoss Web Server is a fully integrated and certified set of
components for hosting Java web applications. It is comprised of the Apache
HTTP Server, the Apache Tomcat Servlet container, Apache Tomcat Connector
(mod_jk), JBoss HTTP Connector (mod_cluster), Hibernate, and the Tomcat
Native library.

This release of Red Hat JBoss Web Server 3.1 Service Pack 1 serves as a
replacement for Red Hat JBoss Web Server 3.1, and includes bug fixes, which
are documented in the Release Notes document linked to in the References.

Security Fix(es):

* It was found that when using remote logging with log4j socket server the
log4j server would deserialize any log event received via TCP or UDP. An
attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted log event that,
during deserialization, would execute arbitrary code in the context of the
logger application. (CVE-2017-5645)

* A vulnerability was discovered in tomcat's handling of pipelined requests
when "Sendfile" was used. If sendfile processing completed quickly, it was
possible for the Processor to be added to the processor cache twice. This
could lead to invalid responses or information disclosure. (CVE-2017-5647)

* A vulnerability was discovered in the error page mechanism in Tomcat's
DefaultServlet implementation. A crafted HTTP request could cause undesired
side effects, possibly including the removal or replacement of the custom
error page. (CVE-2017-5664)

* A vulnerability was discovered in tomcat. When running an untrusted
application under a SecurityManager it was possible, under some
circumstances, for that application to retain references to the request or
response objects and thereby access and/or modify information associated
with another web application. (CVE-2017-5648)

3. Solution:

Before applying the update, back up your existing Red Hat JBoss Web Server
installation (including all applications and configuration files).

The References section of this erratum contains a download link (you must
