Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-0062-01 - Red Hat JBoss Web Server is a fully integrated and certified set of components for hosting Java web applications. It is comprised of the Apache HTTP Server, the Apache Tomcat Servlet container, Apache Tomcat Connector, JBoss HTTP Connector, Hibernate, and the Tomcat Native library. Multiple flaws were found in the way httpd parsed HTTP requests and responses using chunked transfer encoding. A remote attacker could use these flaws to create a specially crafted request, which httpd would decode differently from an HTTP proxy software in front of it, possibly leading to HTTP request smuggling attacks.

Synopsis: Moderate: Red Hat JBoss Web Server 2.1.0 security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2016:0062-01
Product: Red Hat JBoss Web Server
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2016-0062.html
Issue date: 2016-01-21

CVE-2015-3183
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for Red Hat JBoss Web Server 2.1.0 that fixes four security
issues is now available from the Red Hat Customer Portal.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Moderate
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Description:

Red Hat JBoss Web Server is a fully integrated and certified set of
components for hosting Java web applications. It is comprised of the Apache
HTTP Server, the Apache Tomcat Servlet container, Apache Tomcat Connector
(mod_jk), JBoss HTTP Connector (mod_cluster), Hibernate, and the Tomcat
Native library.

Multiple flaws were found in the way httpd parsed HTTP requests and
responses using chunked transfer encoding. A remote attacker could use
these flaws to create a specially crafted request, which httpd would decode
differently from an HTTP proxy software in front of it, possibly leading to
HTTP request smuggling attacks. (CVE-2015-3183)

A denial of service flaw was found in the implementation of hash arrays in
Expat. An attacker could use this flaw to make an application using Expat
consume an excessive amount of CPU time by providing a specially-crafted
XML file that triggers multiple hash function collisions. To mitigate this
issue, randomization has been added to the hash function to reduce the
chance of an attacker successfully causing intentional collisions.
(CVE-2012-0876)

A memory leak flaw was found in Expat. If an XML file processed by an
application linked against Expat triggered a memory re-allocation failure,
Expat failed to free the previously allocated memory. This could cause the
application to exit unexpectedly or crash when all available memory is
exhausted. (CVE-2012-1148)

A flaw was found in the way httpd handled HTTP Trailer headers when
processing requests using chunked encoding. A malicious client could use
Trailer headers to set additional HTTP headers after header processing was
performed by other modules. This could, for example, lead to a bypass of
header restrictions defined with mod_headers. (CVE-2013-5704)

All users of Red Hat JBoss Web Server 2.1.0 as provided from the Red Hat
Customer Portal are advised to apply this update. The Red Hat JBoss Web
Server process must be restarted for the update to take effect.

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 Red Hat JBoss Web Server installation (including all applications
and configuration files).

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

786617 - CVE-2012-0876 expat: hash table collisions CPU usage DoS
801648 - CVE-2012-1148 expat: Memory leak in poolGrow
