Red Hat Security Advisory
Synopsis: Important: JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 4.2.0.CP05 and 4.3.0.CP05 update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2012:1295-01
Product: JBoss Enterprise Middleware
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-1295.html
Issue date: 2012-09-19
CVE Names: CVE-2011-4605
An update for JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 4.2.0.CP05 and 4.3.0.CP05 that
fixes one security issue is now available from the Red Hat Customer Portal.
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.
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. The Java Naming and Directory
Interface (JNDI) Java API allows Java software clients to locate objects or
services in an application server.
It was found that the JBoss JNDI service allowed unauthenticated, remote
write access by default. The JNDI and HA-JNDI services, and the
HAJNDIFactory invoker servlet were all affected. A remote attacker able to
access the JNDI service (port 1099), HA-JNDI service (port 1100), or the
HAJNDIFactory invoker servlet on a JBoss server could use this flaw to add,
delete, and modify items in the JNDI tree. This could have various,
application-specific impacts. (CVE-2011-4605)
Red Hat would like to thank Christian SchlÃƒÂ¼ter (VIADA) for reporting this
All users of JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 4.2.0.CP05 and 4.3.0.CP05 as
provided from the Red Hat Customer Portal are advised to apply this update.
The References section of this erratum contains download links (you must

Enterprise SOA Platform server by starting the JBoss Application Server
