Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Low: struts security update for Red Hat Application Server
Advisory ID: RHSA-2006:0157-01
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2006-0157.html
Issue date: 2006-01-11
Updated on: 2006-01-11
Product: Red Hat Application Server
CVE Names: CVE-2005-3745
- ---------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated Red Hat Application Server components are now available including a
security update for Struts.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat
Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Application Server 3AS - noarch
Red Hat Application Server 3ES - noarch
Red Hat Application Server 3WS - noarch

3. Problem description:

Red Hat Application Server packages provide a J2EE Application Server and
Web container as well as the underlying Java stack.

A cross-site scripting flaw was found in the way Struts displays error
pages. It may be possible for an attacker to construct a specially crafted
URL which could fool a victim into believing they are viewing a trusted
site. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project assigned the
name CVE-2005-3745 to this issue. Please note that this issue does not
affect Struts running on Tomcat or JOnAS, which is our supported usage of
Struts.

All users of Red Hat Application Server should upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain Struts version 1.2.8 which is not vulnerable to
this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):
