Description Jan Lieskovsky 2013-03-29 09:16:20 EDT
Multiple denial of service flaws were found in the way StAX parser implementation of Apache CXF, an open-source web services framework, performed processing of certain XML files. If a web service application utilized the services of the StAX parser, a remote attacker could provide a specially-crafted XML file that, when processed by the application would lead to excessive system resources (CPU cycles, memory) consumption by that application.

Comment 5 Jan Lieskovsky 2013-06-27 07:53:14 EDT
This issue affects the versions of the cxf package, as shipped with Fedora release of 17 and 18. Please schedule an update.
Comment 6 Jan Lieskovsky 2013-06-27 08:11:50 EDT
Regarding the jbossws-cxf packages in Fedora I am not sure if they are affected by this or not (someone more familiar with the jbossws-cxf code please advise).

I will file Fedora child bugs for cxf and jbossws-cxf packages, once jbossws-cxf doubt is cleared.
