Two vulnerabilities were reported in JBoss Web Framework Kit. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information.|
A remote user can supply a specially crafted XML file to the ExecutionHandler, PollHandler, or SubscriptionHandler JBoss Seam Remoting classes to view files on the target system [CVE-2013-6447].
A remote user can access the InterfaceGenerator handler in JBoss Seam Remoting to obtain information on all classes and methods on the target server's classpath [CVE-2013-6448].
Jon Passki of Coverity SRL reported these vulnerabilities.

An update for the seam-remoting component of Red Hat JBoss Web Framework
Kit 2.4.0 that fixes two security issues is now available from the Red Hat
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
moderate security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the
CVE link in the References section.
Red Hat JBoss Web Framework Kit combines popular open source web frameworks
into a single solution for Java applications. The JBoss Seam Remoting
component provides a convenient method of remotely accessing Seam
It was found that the ExecutionHandler, PollHandler, and
SubscriptionHandler classes in JBoss Seam Remoting unmarshalled
user-supplied XML and resolved external entities in this XML. A remote
attacker could use this flaw to read files accessible to the user running
the application server, and potentially perform other more advanced XML
External Entity (XXE) attacks. (CVE-2013-6447)
It was found that the InterfaceGenerator handler in JBoss Seam Remoting
exposed details of all classes and methods on the server's classpath, not
only methods with the org.jboss.seam.annotations.remoting.WebRemote
annotation. A remote attacker could use this flaw to determine which
classes are deployed on the JBoss server. (CVE-2013-6448)
Red Hat would like to thank Jon Passki of Coverity SRL for reporting these
