Red Hat Security Advisory
Synopsis: Important: Red Hat JBoss Web Framework Kit 2.7.0 update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2015:0125-01
Product: Red Hat JBoss Web Framework Kit
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2015-0125.html

Red Hat JBoss Web Framework Kit 2.7.0, which fixes multiple security
issues, various bugs, and adds enhancements, is now available from the Red
Hat Customer Portal.
Red Hat Product Security 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 Web Framework Kit combines popular open source web frameworks
into a single solution for Java applications.
This release serves as a replacement for Red Hat JBoss Web Framework Kit
2.6.0, and includes bug fixes and enhancements. Refer to the 2.7.0 Release
Notes for information on the most significant of these changes, available
shortly from https://access.redhat.com/documentation/
This release also fixes the following security issues:
It was discovered that the HttpClient incorrectly extracted host name from
an X.509 certificate subject's Common Name (CN) field. A man-in-the-middle
attacker could use this flaw to spoof an SSL server using a specially
crafted X.509 certificate. (CVE-2012-6153, CVE-2014-3577)
Note: For additional information on these two flaws, refer to the
Knowledgebase article in the References section.
It was found that external parameter entities were not disabled when the
resteasy.document.expand.entity.references parameter was set to false.
A remote attacker able to send XML requests to a RESTEasy endpoint could
use this flaw to read files accessible to the user running the application
server, and potentially perform other more advanced XXE attacks.
It was discovered that the implementation of
org.hibernate.validator.util.ReflectionHelper together with the permissions
required to run Hibernate Validator under the Java Security Manager could
allow a malicious application deployed in the same application container to
execute several actions with escalated privileges, which might otherwise
not be possible. This flaw could be used to perform various attacks,
including but not restricted to, arbitrary code execution in systems that
are otherwise secured by the Java Security Manager. (CVE-2014-3558)
The CVE-2012-6153 issue was discovered by Florian Weimer of Red Hat Product
Security, and the CVE-2014-3490 issue was discovered by David Jorm of Red
Hat Product Security.
All users of Red Hat JBoss Web Framework Kit 2.6.0 as provided from the Red
Hat Customer Portal are advised to upgrade to Red Hat JBoss Web Framework
The References section of this erratum contains a download link (you must
