Red Hat Security Advisory
Synopsis: Important: Red Hat JBoss Operations Network 3.2.2 update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2014:0910-01
Product: Red Hat JBoss Operations Network
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0910.html
Issue date: 2014-07-21
CVE Names: CVE-2013-5855 CVE-2014-0058 CVE-2014-0193
Red Hat JBoss Operations Network 3.2.2, which fixes multiple security
issues and several bugs, 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.
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.
This JBoss Operations Network 3.2.2 release serves as a replacement for
JBoss Operations Network 3.2.1, and includes several bug fixes. Refer to
the JBoss Operations Network 3.2.2 Release Notes for information on the
most significant of these changes. The Release Notes will be available
shortly from https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-US/
The following security issues are also fixed with this release:
It was found that the implementation of the
provided a DocumentBuilderFactory that would expand entity references.
A remote, unauthenticated attacker could use this flaw to read files
accessible to the user running the application server, and potentially
perform other more advanced XXE attacks. (CVE-2014-3530)
It was found that Mojarra JavaServer Faces did not properly escape
user-supplied content in certain circumstances. Contents of outputText tags
and raw EL expressions that immediately follow script or style elements
were not escaped. A remote attacker could use a specially crafted URL to
execute arbitrary web script in the user's browser. (CVE-2013-5855)
It was found that the security audit functionality, provided by JBoss
Operations Network, logged request parameters in plain text. This may have
caused passwords to be included in the audit log files when using BASIC or
FORM-based authentication. A local attacker with access to audit log files
could possibly use this flaw to obtain application or server authentication
credentials. Refer to the Solution section of this advisory for additional
information on the fix for this issue. (CVE-2014-0058)
A flaw was found in the WebSocket08FrameDecoder implementation that could
allow a remote attacker to trigger an Out Of Memory Exception by issuing a
series of TextWebSocketFrame and ContinuationWebSocketFrames. Depending on
the server configuration, this could lead to a denial of service.
Red Hat would like to thank Alexander Papadakis for reporting
CVE-2014-3530, and James Roper of Typesafe for reporting CVE-2014-0193.
All users of JBoss Operations Network 3.2.1 as provided from the Red Hat
Customer Portal are advised to upgrade to JBoss Operations Network 3.2.2.
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).
Refer to the JBoss Operations Network 3.2.2 Release Notes for
The provided patch to fix CVE-2014-0058 also allows greater control over
which of the following components of web requests are captured in audit
- - - parameters
- - - cookies
- - - headers
- - - attributes
It is also possible to selectively mask some elements of headers,
parameters, cookies, and attributes using masks. This capability is
provided by two system properties, which are introduced by this patch:
This property controls the granularity of the security auditing of web
off = Disables auditing of web requests
headers = Audits only the headers of web requests
cookies = Audits only the cookies of web requests
parameters = Audits only the parameters of web requests
attributes = Audits only the attributes of web requests
headers,cookies,parameters = Audits the headers, cookies, and parameters of
headers,cookies = Audits the headers and cookies of web requests
Setting "org.jboss.security.web.audit=off" disables security auditing of
web requests entirely.
Setting "org.jboss.security.web.audit=headers" enables security auditing of
only headers in web requests.
This property can be used to specify a list of strings to be matched
against headers, parameters, cookies, and attributes of web requests.
Any element matching the specified masks will be excluded from security
Any comma separated string indicating keys of headers, parameters, cookies,
Note that currently the matching of the masks is fuzzy rather than strict.
For example, a mask of "authorization" will mask both the header called
authorization and the parameter called "custom_authorization". A future
release may introduce strict masks.
