Red Hat Security Advisory 2014-1725-01 - Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is a platform for Java applications, which integrates the JBoss Application Server with JBoss Hibernate and JBoss Seam. It was discovered that the Apache Santuario XML Security for Java project allowed Document Type Definitions to be processed when applying Transforms even when secure validation was enabled. A remote attacker could use this flaw to exhaust all available memory on the system, causing a denial of service. All users of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 5.2.0 as provided from the Red Hat Customer Portal are advised to apply this update. The JBoss server process must be restarted for this update to take effect.
