Synopsis: Important: JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform 5.2.2 security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2013:0613-01
Product: JBoss Enterprise Middleware
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-0613.html

CVE Names: CVE-2013-0314 CVE-2013-0315
An update for the GateIn Portal component in JBoss Enterprise Portal
Platform 5.2.2 that fixes two security issues is now available from the
Red Hat Customer Portal.
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important 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.
JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform is the open source implementation of the
Java EE suite of services and Portal services running atop JBoss Enterprise
Application Platform. It comprises a set of offerings for enterprise
customers who are looking for pre-configured profiles of JBoss Enterprise
Middleware components that have been tested and certified together to
provide an integrated experience.
It was found that the GateIn Portal export/import gadget allowed an export
ZIP to be uploaded and imported to a site without authentication. A remote
attacker could use this flaw to modify the contents of a site, remove the
site, or modify access controls applied to portlets in the site.
It was found that the GateIn Portal export/import gadget was vulnerable to
XXE (XML External Entity) attacks. If the XML provided to the import gadget
contained an external XML entity, this XML entity would be resolved. A
remote attacker who can access the import gadget could use this flaw to
read files in the context of the user running the application server.
The CVE-2013-0314 issue was discovered by Nick Scavelli of Red Hat, and
CVE-2013-0315 was discovered by Arun Neelicattu and David Jorm of the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

JBoss Enterprise Portal Platform, along with all customized configuration
