                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Moderate: JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.2.0 update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2011:1456-01
Product:           JBoss Enterprise Middleware
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1456.html

CVE Names:         CVE-2010-1330 CVE-2011-4085 

1. Summary:

JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.2.0, which fixes two security issues,
various bugs, and adds enhancements is now available from the Red Hat
Customer Portal.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
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 SOA Platform is the next-generation ESB and business
process automation infrastructure. JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform allows IT
to leverage existing (MoM and EAI), modern (SOA and BPM-Rules), and future
(EDA and CEP) integration methodologies to dramatically improve business
process execution speed and quality.

This release of JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.2.0 serves as a replacement
for JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.1.0. It includes various bug fixes and
enhancements which are detailed in the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.2.0
Release Notes. The Release Notes will be available shortly from

The following security issues are also fixed with this release:

A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in JRuby (a Java implementation
of Ruby), which is included in the scripting_chain sample application. The
sample application does not expose this flaw. If the version of JRuby
shipped with the scripting_chain sample application was used to build a
custom application, a remote attacker could use this flaw to supply
specially-crafted input to that application, leading to the execution of
arbitrary HTML or web script. (CVE-2010-1330)

Note: JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform only provides JRuby as a dependency of
the scripting_chain quickstart. The CVE-2010-1330 flaw is not exposed
unless the version of JRuby shipped with that quickstart is used by a
deployed, custom application.

It was found that the invoker servlets, deployed by default via
httpha-invoker, only performed access control on the HTTP GET and POST
methods, allowing remote attackers to make unauthenticated requests by
using different HTTP methods. Due to the second layer of authentication
provided by a security interceptor, this issue is not exploitable on
default installations unless an administrator has misconfigured the
security interceptor or disabled it. (CVE-2011-4085)

Warning: Before applying the update, back up your existing JBoss Enterprise
SOA Platform installation (including its databases, applications,
configuration files, and so on).

All users of JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.1.0 as provided from the Red
Hat Customer Portal are advised to upgrade to JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform

3. Solution:

The References section of this erratum contains a download link (you must
log in to download the update).

4. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

750306 - CVE-2010-1330 jruby: XSS in the regular expression engine when processing invalid UTF-8 byte sequences
750422 - CVE-2011-4085 Invoker servlets authentication bypass (HTTP verb tampering)
