3. Description:

The jboss-ec2-eap packages provide scripts for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise
Application Platform running on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic
Compute Cloud (EC2).

With this update, the jboss-ec2-eap package has been updated to ensure
compatibility with Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.4.15.

Security Fix(es):

* It was discovered that under certain conditions RESTEasy could be forced
to parse a request with YamlProvider, resulting in unmarshalling of
potentially untrusted data. An attacker could possibly use this flaw
execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the application using
RESTEasy. (CVE-2016-9606)
