Description Jason Shepherd 2016-07-22 05:01:21 UTC
Description of problem:

The Jython library is on the the classpath. If users fail to enable authentication between client and server, a malicious payload, including a reference to the Jython libary, could be send which allows code execution when deserialized.

In JON 3.3.x jython repackaged in a JAR called "rhq-scripting-python-4.12.0.JON330GA.jar". This library can be found in
the shared libraries under modules/org/rhq/server-startup/main/deployments/rq.ear/lib/.

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

I'm guessing this library is part of CLI component, I'm not sure.

How reproducible:

Comment 1 Jason Shepherd 2016-08-10 23:48:59 UTC
I suggestion for fixing this issue is to remove the rhq-scripting-python library.
