JBoss Seam remoting vulnerabilities

Description

JBoss Seam provides a convenient method of remotely accessing components from a web page, using AJAX (Asynchronous Javascript and XML). The framework for this functionality is provided with almost no up-front development effort - your components only require simple annotating to become accessible via AJAX.

Seam version 2.3.1 and earlier are susceptible to multiple blind XML External Entity attacks, CVE-2013-6447, and a minor information disclosure related to available classes and class structure, CVE-2013-6448. Red Hat has documented this under RHSA-2014-0045.

Remediation

Red Hat recommends Seam users to upgrade to version 2.4.0.
