Description Arun Babu Neelicattu 2014-08-12 08:21:09 UTC
It was found that the fix for CVE-2012-6153 was incomplete. The code added to check that the server hostname matches  the domain name in the subject's CN field was flawed. This can be exploited by a Man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack where the attacker can spoof a valid certificate using a specially crafted subject.

Comment 1 Arun Babu Neelicattu 2014-08-12 09:16:20 UTC
Statement:

Additional information can be found in the Red Hat Knowledgebase article: https://access.redhat.com/solutions/1165533

This issue affects the versions of HttpComponents Client as shipped with Red Hat JBoss Data Grid 6 and Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization 6; and ModeShape Client as shipped with Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization 6. However, this flaw is not known to be exploitable under any supported scenario in Red Hat JBoss Data Grid 6 and JBoss Data Virtualization 6. A future update may address this issue.

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 4,  Red Hat JBoss SOA Platform 4, and Red Hat JBoss Web Server 1 are now in Phase 3, Extended Life Support, of their respective life cycles. This issue has been rated as having Important security impact and is not currently planned to be addressed in future updates. For additional information, refer to the Red Hat JBoss Middleware and Red Hat JBoss Operations Network Product Update and Support Policy: https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/jboss_notes/

Fuse ESB 4, Fuse Message Broker 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and Fuse Services Framework 2.3, 2.4 are now in a reduced support phase receiving only Critical impact security fixes. This issue has been rated as having Important security impact and is not currently planned to be addressed in future updates. For additional information, refer to the Fuse Product Life Cycle: https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/updates/fusesource/

Comment 12 Arun Babu Neelicattu 2014-08-14 07:31:12 UTC
Note that upstream identifies HttpAsyncClient as being vulnerable to this issue. However, do note that the HttpAsyncClient artifacts themselves are only affected via a transient dependency on a vulnerable version of HttpClient (older than 4.3.5).

Comment 13 Arun Babu Neelicattu 2014-08-14 07:49:35 UTC
This issue was introduced upstream via [1]. However, note that all versions prior to 4.2.3 is vulnerable to CVE-2012-6153.

Comment 23 Tomas Hoger 2014-08-25 15:13:29 UTC
The original issue CVE-2012-6153 is tracked via bug 1129916.  It also is an incomplete fix CVE for CVE-2012-5783 (bug 873317).

In addition to the problem corrected in the fixed that got CVE-2012-6153 assigned (see bug 1129916 comment 20), the additional problem was found with the code that was used to extract Common Name (CN) from an X.509 certificate subject.  Use of comma used as part of the subject attribute value could confuse tokenizer to split subject and attempt to match "CN=" string in the middle of some other attribute value.  Upstream advisory (linked in comment 15 above) uses the following example:

  O="foo,CN=www.apache.org"

www.apache.org was incorrectly extracted as valid CN from such subject.
