1. Summary:

An update for Red Hat JBoss Operations Network 3.1.2 that fixes multiple
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. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.

2. Description:

Red Hat JBoss Operations Network is a middleware management solution that
provides a single point of control to deploy, manage, and monitor JBoss
Enterprise Middleware, applications, and services.

A flaw was found in the way the DiskFileItem class handled NULL characters
in file names. A remote attacker able to supply a serialized instance of
the DiskFileItem class, which will be deserialized on a server, could use
this flaw to write arbitrary content to any location on the server that is
accessible to the user running the application server process.

A denial of service flaw was found in the implementation of the
org.jboss.remoting.transport.socket.ServerThread class in JBoss
Remoting. An attacker could use this flaw to exhaust all available file
descriptors on the target server, preventing legitimate connections. Note
that to exploit this flaw remotely, the remoting port must be exposed
directly or indirectly (for example, deploying a public facing application
that uses JBoss Remoting could indirectly expose this flaw).

It was found that the JBoss Operations Network server exposed configured
passwords in plain text in its log files by default. A local user with
access to these log files could use the exposed credentials.

A flaw was found in the way JPADriftServerBean instances stored drift
files. The storeFiles method created a predictable temporary directory when
unpacking a zip file. Once a zip file was extracted to the temporary
directory, all files in this directory were stored. A local attacker could
provide their own drift files to be imported into the server instance.

The CVE-2013-4293 was discovered by Larry O'Leary of the Red Hat Middleware
Support Engineering Group, and CVE-2013-4210 was discovered by James
Livingston of the Red Hat Support Engineering Group.

All users of JBoss Operations Network 3.1.2 as provided from the Red Hat
Customer Portal are advised to apply this update.

3. Solution:

The References section of this erratum contains a download link (you must
log in to download the update). Before applying this update, back up your
existing JBoss Operations Network installation (including its databases,
applications, configuration files, the JBoss Operations Network server's
file system directory, and so on).

Note: This update provides fixes for the server, agent, and core GUI
components of Red Hat JBoss Operations Network. It is recommended to apply
all the patches provided by this update.
