Comment 7 Jonathan Christison 2021-10-15 13:55:12 UTC
Marking Red Hat Fuse 7, Red Hat Jboss Fuse 6 and Red Hat AMQ 6 as having a low impact, this is because although vulnerable versions of shiro are distributed only components using shiro in the context of the web application portion of the shiro framework are affected and then only in the context of springboot applications, so the vulnerable functionality is not used for any of these products. 

This vulnerability is out of security support scope for the following products:

 * Red Hat JBoss Fuse 6
 * Red Hat JBoss AMQ 6
