Posted Feb 10, 2012
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-0108-01 - JBoss Cache is the clustering backbone for data distribution in JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. It provides the backing implementation for web session replication, stateful session bean replication and entity caching. It was found that NonManagedConnectionFactory would log the username and password in plain text when an exception was thrown. This could lead to the exposure of authentication credentials if local users had permissions to read the log file. Warning: Before applying this update, back up your existing JBoss Enterprise Application Platform's "jboss-as/server/[PROFILE]/lib/jbosscache-core.jar" file.
