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

Security Fix(es):

* A deserialization flaw allowing remote code execution was found in the
BeanShell library. If BeanShell was on the classpath, it could permit code
execution if another part of the application deserialized objects involving
a specially constructed chain of classes. A remote attacker could use this
flaw to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the application
using the BeanShell library. (CVE-2016-2510)

* A denial of service flaw was found in the way the HSLFSlideShow class
implementation in Apache POI handled certain PPT files. A remote attacker
could submit a specially crafted PPT file that would cause Apache POI to
hang indefinitely. (CVE-2014-9527)

All users of Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization 6.2.0 as provided from the
Red Hat Customer Portal are advised to apply this update.

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
