Description David Jorm 2012-06-29 02:44:07 EDT
The CallerIdentityLoginModule will retain the password from the previous call if a null password is provided, and pass the provided username along with the previously provided password as credentials for the current Principal. If the CallerIdentityLoginModule was utilized in a way that allowed a user to authenticate with a null password (rather than an empty string), then a remote attacker could exploit this flaw to hijack the credentials of a previously authenticated user if they knew their username, and were able to time their login attempt so it immediately followed a call made by the previously authenticated user.

Comment 17 David Jorm 2012-09-11 00:11:41 EDT
It has been found that this flaw is not exploitable on JBoss AS 7 and EAP 6. It will be fixed as a defence in depth measure in these products, but does not constitute a security flaw. This flaw is only exploitable on products based on EAP 5.
