Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1011-01

Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1011-01
Posted Jun 20, 2012
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1011-01 - mod_cluster is an Apache HTTP Server based load balancer that forwards requests from httpd to application server nodes. It can use the AJP, HTTP, or HTTPS protocols for communication with application server nodes. The JBoss Enterprise Web Platform 5.1.2 release introduced a regression, causing mod_cluster to register and expose the root context of a server by default, even when "ROOT" was in the "excludedContexts" list in the mod_cluster configuration. If an application was deployed on the root context, a remote attacker could use this flaw to bypass intended access restrictions and gain access to that application.

root context, a remote attacker could use this flaw to bypass intended
access restrictions and gain access to that application. (CVE-2012-1154)

Warning: Before applying this update, back up your JBoss Enterprise Web
Platform's "jboss-as-web/server/[PROFILE]/deploy/" directory and any other
