An update is now available for Red Hat JBoss BRMS.
Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
the CVE link(s) in the References section.
This release of Red Hat JBoss BRMS 6.4.0 serves as a replacement for Red
Hat JBoss BRMS 6.3.4, and includes bug fixes and enhancements, which are
documented in the Release Notes of the patch linked to in the References
* It was found that several XML parsers used by XStream had default
settings 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
* Drools Workbench contains the path traversal vulnerability. The
vulnerability allows a remote, authenticated attacker to bypass the
directory restrictions and retrieve arbitrary files from the affected host.
* JBoss BRMS 6 and BPM Suite 6 are vulnerable to a stored XSS via business
process editor. The flaw is due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2016-5398.
Remote, authenticated attackers that have privileges to create business
processes can store scripts in them, which are not properly sanitized
before showing to other users, including admins. (CVE-2016-8608)
Red Hat would like to thank Jonas Bauters (NVISO) for reporting
CVE-2016-7041. The CVE-2016-8608 issue was discovered by Kirill Gaevskii
Before applying the update, back up your existing installation, including
