    • Release Notes
    • In previous releases of JBoss EAP 5, Seam WebResource could cause a potential path vulnerability. This release of the product sees the removal of WebResource as Seam not longer uses it. This action, therefore, also resolves the vulnerability issue.
    • Documented as Resolved Issue
    • NEW

      Whenever a user uses jboss-seam-ui.jar in his application a org.jboss.seam.ui.resource.WebResource is automatically started and when certain url is accessed


      an archive with WebResource class is downloaded, i.e. anything in org.jboss.seam.ui.resource package can be accessed from outside.

      This is a potential vulnerability, since attacker can see parts of the implementation of the application.
