Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-1330-01 - JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform is the next-generation ESB and business process automation infrastructure. JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform allows IT to leverage existing, modern, and future integration methodologies to dramatically improve business process execution speed and quality. An attack technique was found against the W3C XML Encryption Standard when block ciphers were used in cipher-block chaining mode. A remote attacker could use this flaw to conduct chosen-ciphertext attacks, leading to the recovery of the entire plain text of a particular cryptogram by examining the differences between SOAP responses sent from JBoss Web Services.

Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Important: JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.3.0 security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2012:1330-01
Product: JBoss Enterprise Middleware
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-1330.html
Issue date: 2012-10-03
CVE Names: CVE-2011-1096
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for the JBoss Web Services component in JBoss Enterprise SOA
Platform 5.3.0 that fixes one security issue is now available from the Red
Hat Customer Portal.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.

2. Description:

JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform is the next-generation ESB and business
process automation infrastructure. JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform allows IT
to leverage existing (MoM and EAI), modern (SOA and BPM-Rules), and future
(EDA and CEP) integration methodologies to dramatically improve business
process execution speed and quality.

An attack technique was found against the W3C XML Encryption Standard when
block ciphers were used in cipher-block chaining (CBC) mode. A remote
attacker could use this flaw to conduct chosen-ciphertext attacks, leading
to the recovery of the entire plain text of a particular cryptogram by
examining the differences between SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol)
responses sent from JBoss Web Services. (CVE-2011-1096)

Red Hat would like to thank Juraj Somorovsky of Ruhr-University Bochum
for reporting this issue.

Note: Manual action is required to apply this update. The CVE-2011-1096
issue is an attack on the WS-Security standard itself. Using new
Galois/Counter Mode (GCM) based algorithms for WS-Security encryption is
the W3C suggested way of dealing with this issue. The WS-SecurityPolicy
specification has not yet been updated to include the new algorithms.
Consequently, Apache CXF independently added support for such GCM based
algorithms through AlgorithmSuites called "Basic128GCM", "Basic192GCM", and
"Basic256GCM" in the namespace
"http://cxf.apache.org/custom/security-policy".

To apply these policies to your applications that use WS-Security
encryption, specify them in the application's WSDL file. Refer to Red Hat
Bugzilla bug 681916 for an example.

All users of JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.3.0 as provided from the Red
Hat Customer Portal are advised to install this update.

3. Solution:

The References section of this erratum contains a download link (you must
log in to download the update). Before applying the update, back up your
existing JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform installation (including its
databases, applications, configuration files, and so on).

Note that it is recommended to halt the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform
server by stopping the JBoss Application Server process before installing
this update, and then after installing the update, restart the JBoss
Enterprise SOA Platform server by starting the JBoss Application Server
process.

4. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

681916 - CVE-2011-1096 jbossws: Prone to character encoding pattern attack (XML Encryption flaw)
