1. Summary:

Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization 6.0.0 roll up patch 4, which fixes three
security issues and various bugs, is now available from the Red Hat

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 Data Virtualization is a lean data integration solution that
provides easy, real-time, and unified data access across disparate sources
to multiple applications and users. JBoss Data Virtualization makes data
spread across physically distinct systems—such as multiple databases, XML
files, and even Hadoop systems—appear as a set of tables in a local

This roll up patch serves as a cumulative upgrade for Red Hat JBoss Data
Virtualization 6.0.0. It includes various bug fixes, which are listed in
the README file included with the patch files.

The following security issues are also fixed with this release:

It was found that Odata4j permitted XML eXternal Entity (XXE) attacks. If a
REST endpoint was deployed, a remote attacker could submit a request
containing an external XML entity that, when resolved, allowed that
attacker to read files on the application server in the context of the user
running that server. (CVE-2014-0171)

The HawtJNI Library class wrote native libraries to a predictable file name
in /tmp when the native libraries were bundled in a JAR file, and no custom
library path was specified. A local attacker could overwrite these native
libraries with malicious versions during the window between when HawtJNI
writes them and when they are executed. (CVE-2013-2035)

It was found that the security audit functionality logged request
parameters in plain text. This may have caused passwords to be included in
the audit log files when using BASIC or FORM-based authentication. A local
attacker with access to audit log files could possibly use this flaw to
obtain application or server authentication credentials. (CVE-2014-0058)

The CVE-2014-0171 issue was discovered by David Jorm of Red Hat Product
Security; the CVE-2013-2035 issue was discovered by Florian Weimer of Red
Hat Product Security.

All users of Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization 6.0.0 as provided from the
Red Hat Customer Portal are advised to apply this roll up patch.

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 Data Virtualization installation (including its
databases, applications, configuration files, and so on).

Note that it is recommended to halt the Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization
server by stopping the JBoss Application Server process before installing
this update, and then after installing the update, restart the Red Hat
JBoss Data Virtualization server by starting the JBoss Application Server

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

958618 - CVE-2013-2035 HawtJNI: predictable temporary file name leading to local arbitrary code execution
1063641 - CVE-2014-0058 Red Hat JBoss EAP6: Plain text password logging during security audit
