Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-1374-01 - JBoss Portal Platform provides an integrated open source platform for hosting and serving a portal's web interface, aggregating, publishing, and managing its content, and personalizing its experience. This asynchronous patch is a security update for JGroups package in Red Hat JBoss Portal Platform 6.2. Security Fix: It was found that JGroups did not require necessary headers for encrypt and auth protocols from new nodes joining the cluster. An attacker could use this flaw to bypass security restrictions, and use this vulnerability to send and receive messages within the cluster, leading to information disclosure, message spoofing, or further possible attacks.
