2. Description:

Red Hat JBoss Web Framework Kit combines popular open source web frameworks
into a single solution for Java applications.

2.5.0, and includes bug fixes and enhancements. Refer to the 2.6.0 Release
Notes for information on the most significant of these changes, available
shortly from https://access.redhat.com/documentation/

This release also fixes the following security issues:

It was discovered that bouncycastle leaked timing information when
decrypting TLS/SSL protocol encrypted records when CBC-mode cipher suites
were used. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to retrieve plain
text from the encrypted packets by using a TLS/SSL server as a padding
oracle. (CVE-2013-1624)

It was found that Mojarra JavaServer Faces did not properly escape
user-supplied content in certain circumstances. Contents of outputText tags
and raw EL expressions that immediately follow script or style elements
were not escaped. A remote attacker could use a specially crafted URL to
execute arbitrary web script in the user's browser. (CVE-2013-5855)

All users of Red Hat JBoss Web Framework Kit 2.5.0 as provided from the Red
Hat Customer Portal are advised to upgrade to Red Hat JBoss Web Framework
Kit 2.6.0.

existing installation of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform or
