Description David Jorm 2013-10-31 01:18:21 EDT
Seam logging evaluates expression language (EL) statements in log messages. If an application includes user-provided strings in log messages directly via string concatenation, then a remote attacker could inject EL statements directly into the log messages, which would be evaluated on the server. If debug logging is enabled, Zanata performs logging of user-supplied strings using string concatenation. A remote attacker could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code in the context of the application server running Zanata.

Not Vulnerable. Zanata is not shipped in any supported Red Hat products.
