Description Jason Shepherd 2015-09-25 02:14:08 EDT
Description of problem:

The version of Commons HttpClient shipped in JON, and used by rhq-rh-access.war, and the plugins can cause a server thread to become unresponsive during SSLHandshake. See upstream bug for more details:


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

   httpclient 4.3.2

How reproducible:

   Run the attached reproducer and observe that the SocketTimeout setting is ignored.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile the attached reproducer with:

   javac -classpath /path/to/httpcore.jar:/path/to/httpclient.jar \

2. Run it with:

   java -classpath /path/to/httpcore.jar:/path/to/httpclient.jar:/usr/share/java/commons-logging.jar:/usr/share/java/commons-logging-api.jar:. \

Actual results:


Expected results:


Additional info:

  This was raised to the me as CVE-2015-5262, which I attached to this bug. However it doesn't seem to be exploitable at will, so I'm not raising a security tracker bug for it.

Moving to ON_QA as available to test with the following build:

Note: 	jon-server-patch-3.3.0.GA.zip maps to JON 3.3.6(jon-server-3.3.0.GA-update-06.zip)

"I'm not sure if I understand the fix correctly but it seems the issue is not resolved."

While verification: according "to confirm that rhq-rq-access web application is no longer included in the list of applications hosted by JON with the ear".

Application "rhq-rh-access" started along with others, so it couldn't be considered as 'surely non-deployable'.

Reproducer 'ClientTimeout43.java' still shows 'FAIL' while running.

Seems BZ status should be 'REJECTED' or 'ASSIGNED'
