It was found that fix for CVE-2016-9606 was incomplete and Yaml unmarshalling in Resteasy is still possible via `Yaml.load()` in YamlProvider.
resteasy-yaml-provider is marked as unsupported here. Marking EAP 7 as not affected
If the YamlProvider is enabled it's recommended to add authentication, and authorization to the endpoint expecting Yaml content to prevent exploitation of this vulnerability.
This won't be fixed in JBoss EAP 6.4, or 7.1 as the YamlProvider in RESTEasy is unsupported.
