In the default configuration, after JBoss is installed, the web console is available at http://localhost:8080/web-console. The Web console can be used to display the JNDI tree, dump the list of threads, redeploy an application or even shutdown the application server. By default, the console is not secured and can be used by remote attackers. Check References for detailed information.
