Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1053-01 - 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.

3. Description:

mod_cluster is an Apache HTTP Server (httpd) 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 (RHSA-2011:1804,
RHSA-2011:1803, RHSA-2011:1802) 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. (CVE-2012-1154)

Warning: Before applying this update, back up your JBoss Enterprise Web
Platform's "server/[PROFILE]/deploy/" directory and any other customized
configuration files.

Users of JBoss Enterprise Web Platform 5.1.2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4,
5, and 6 should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct this
issue. The JBoss server process must be restarted for this update to take
effect.

4. Solution:

relevant to your system have been applied.
