Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-0164-01
Posted Jan 15, 2013
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2013-0164-01 - JBoss Web is the web container, based on Apache Tomcat, in JBoss Enterprise Application Platform. It provides a single deployment platform for the JavaServer Pages and Java Servlet technologies. It was found that when an application used FORM authentication, along with another component that calls request.setUserPrincipal() before the call to FormAuthenticator#authenticate(), it was possible to bypass the security constraint checks in the FORM authenticator by appending "/j_security_check" to the end of a URL. A remote attacker with an authenticated session on an affected application could use this flaw to circumvent authorization controls, and thereby access resources not permitted by the roles associated with their authenticated session.

Updated jbossweb packages that fix one security issue are now available for
JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.0.1 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5

3. Description:

JBoss Web is the web container, based on Apache Tomcat, in JBoss Enterprise
Application Platform. It provides a single deployment platform for the
JavaServer Pages (JSP) and Java Servlet technologies.

It was found that when an application used FORM authentication, along with
another component that calls request.setUserPrincipal() before the call to
FormAuthenticator#authenticate() (such as the Single-Sign-On valve), it was
possible to bypass the security constraint checks in the FORM authenticator
by appending "/j_security_check" to the end of a URL. A remote attacker
with an authenticated session on an affected application could use this
flaw to circumvent authorization controls, and thereby access resources not
permitted by the roles associated with their authenticated session.
(CVE-2012-3546)

Warning: Before applying this update, back up your existing JBoss
Enterprise Application Platform installation (including all applications

Enterprise Linux 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:
