Summary: Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform 5.3.1 roll up patch 3, which fixes three security issues and various bugs, 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: Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform is the next-generation ESB and business process automation infrastructure. Red Hat JBoss 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 roll up patch serves as a cumulative upgrade for Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform 5.3.1. It includes various bug fixes. The following security issues are also fixed with this release: The Jakarta Commons HttpClient component did not verify that the server hostname matched the domain name in the subject's Common Name (CN) or subjectAltName field in X.509 certificates. This could allow a man-in-the-middle attacker to spoof an SSL server if they had a certificate that was valid for any domain name. (CVE-2012-5783) A flaw in JRuby's JSON gem allowed remote attacks by creating different types of malicious objects. For example, it could initiate a denial of service attack through resource consumption by using a JSON document to create arbitrary Ruby symbols, which were never garbage collected. It could also be exploited to create internal objects which could allow a SQL injection attack. (CVE-2013-0269) It was discovered that JRuby's REXML library did not properly restrict XML entity expansion. An attacker could use this flaw to cause a denial of service by tricking a Ruby application using REXML to read text nodes from specially-crafted XML content, which will result in REXML consuming large amounts of system memory. (CVE-2013-1821) Note: Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform only provides JRuby as a dependency of the scripting_chain quickstart example application. The CVE-2013-0269 and CVE-2013-1821 flaws are not exposed unless the version of JRuby shipped with that quickstart is used by a deployed, custom application. Red Hat would like to thank Ruby on Rails upstream for reporting CVE-2013-0269. Upstream acknowledges Thomas Hollstegge of Zweitag and Ben Murphy as the original reporters of CVE-2013-0269. Warning: Before applying the update, back up your existing Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform installation (including its databases, applications, configuration files, and so on). All users of Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform 5.3.1 as provided from the Red Hat Customer Portal are advised to apply this roll up patch. 3. Solution: The References section of this erratum contains a download link (you must log in to download the update). Before applying the update, back up your existing Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform installation (including its databases, applications, configuration files, and so on). Note that it is recommended to halt the Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform server by stopping the JBoss Application Server process before installing this update, and then after installing the update, restart the Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform server by starting the JBoss Application Server process. 4. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/): 873317 - CVE-2012-5783 jakarta-commons-httpclient: missing connection hostname check against X.509 certificate name 909029 - CVE-2013-0269 rubygem-json: Denial of Service and SQL Injection 914716 - CVE-2013-1821 ruby: entity expansion DoS vulnerability in REXML 5.
