Statement:

This issue affects the versions of RESTEasy as shipped with Red Hat Satellite 6. Red Hat Product Security has rated this issue as having a security impact of Moderate. Additionally Red Hat Satellite does not use the default ExceptionMapper, and the custom exception handler does not allow return type of text/html. A future update may address this issue. For additional information, refer to the Issue Severity Classification: https://access.redhat.com/security/updates/classification/.
