most significant of these changes. The Release Notes will be available

The following security issues are also fixed with this release:

It was discovered that JBoss Web did not limit the length of chunk sizes
when using chunked transfer encoding. A remote attacker could use this flaw
to perform a denial of service attack against JBoss Web by streaming an
unlimited quantity of data, leading to excessive consumption of server
resources. (CVE-2014-0075)

It was found that JBoss Web did not check for overflowing values when
parsing request content length headers. A remote attacker could use this
flaw to perform an HTTP request smuggling attack on a JBoss Web server
located behind a reverse proxy that processed the content length header
correctly. (CVE-2014-0099)

The CVE-2014-0075 issue was discovered by David Jorm of Red Hat Product

All users of JBoss Operations Network 3.2.2 as provided from the Red Hat
Customer Portal are advised to upgrade to JBoss Operations Network 3.2.3.
