and various bugs is now available.

3. Description:

JasperReports Server is a reporting server.

A flaw was found in the way the Apache Xerces2 Java Parser processed the
SYSTEM identifier in DTDs. A remote attacker could provide a
specially-crafted XML file, which once parsed by an application using the
Apache Xerces2 Java Parser, would lead to a denial of service (application
hang due to excessive CPU use). (CVE-2009-2625)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* Adding a user to any ROLE caused an unexpected exception. (BZ#730712)

* Previously, the jasperreports-server-pro RPM spec file contained the
"%{dist}" tag on the "Release" line. To comply with the packaging and
naming guidelines, the tag has been changed to "%{?dist}" with this update.
(BZ#868927)

* In some cases reports were opened with an incorrect list of
Entity/Entities. (BZ#842687)

Note: The jasperreports-server-pro package replaces rhevm-reports-server
from Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager 3.0.

Users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which corrects these
issues.

relevant to your system have been applied.
