2. Description:

Red Hat JBoss BRMS is a business rules management system for the
management, storage, creation, modification, and deployment of JBoss Rules.

This release of Red Hat JBoss BRMS 6.4.7 serves as a replacement for Red
Hat JBoss BRMS 6.4.6, and includes bug fixes and enhancements, which are
documented in the Release Notes document linked to in the References.

Security Fix(es):

* A denial of service vulnerability was discovered in ZooKeeper which
allows an attacker to dramatically increase CPU utilization by abusing
"wchp/wchc" commands, leading to the server being unable to serve
legitimate requests. (CVE-2017-5637)

* It was discovered that the XmlUtils class in jbpmmigration performed
expansion of external parameter entities while parsing XML files. A remote
attacker could use this flaw to read files accessible to the user running
the application server and, potentially, perform other more advanced XML
eXternal Entity (XXE) attacks. (CVE-2017-7545)

Red Hat would like to thank Man Yue Mo (Semmle) for reporting
CVE-2017-7545.
