Red Hat Security Advisory 2014-2019-01
Posted Dec 19, 2014
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2014-2019-01 - Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java applications based on JBoss Application Server 7. It was discovered that the Apache CXF incorrectly extracted the host name from an X.509 certificate subject's Common Name field. A man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to spoof an SSL server using a specially crafted X.509 certificate. It was found that Apache WSS4J, as used by Apache CXF with the TransportBinding, did not, by default, properly enforce all security requirements associated with SAML SubjectConfirmation methods. A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform various types of spoofing attacks on web service endpoints secured by WSS4j that rely on SAML for authentication.

3. Description:

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java

It was found that Apache WSS4J (Web Services Security for Java), as used by
Apache CXF with the TransportBinding, did not, by default, properly enforce
all security requirements associated with SAML SubjectConfirmation methods.
A remote attacker could use this flaw to perform various types of spoofing
attacks on web service endpoints secured by WSS4j that rely on SAML for
authentication. (CVE-2014-3623)

The CVE-2012-6153 issue was discovered by Florian Weimer of Red Hat
