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 release of Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization 6.4 serves as a
replacement for Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization 6.3.8, and includes bug
fixes and enhancements, which are documented in the Release Notes document
linked to in the References.

Security Fix(es):

* JBoss BPM Suite 6 is vulnerable to a reflected XSS via dashbuilder.
Remote attackers can entice authenticated users that have privileges to
access dashbuilder (usually admins) to click on links to
/dashbuilder/Controller containing malicious scripts. Successful
exploitation would allow execution of script code within the context of the
affected user. (CVE-2016-6343)

* It has been reported that CSRF tokens are not properly handled in JBoss
BPM suite dashbuilder. Old tokens generated during an active session can be
used to bypass CSRF protection. In addition, the tokens are sent in query
string so they can be exposed through the browser's history, referrers, web
logs, and other sources. Attackers may be able to obtain old tokens from
various sources in the network and perform CSRF attacks successfully.

These issues were discovered by Jeremy Choi (Red Hat Product Security

3. Solution:

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
