2. Description:

Red Hat JBoss Data Grid is a distributed in-memory data grid, based on

This release of Red Hat JBoss Data Grid 7.1.1 serves as a replacement for
Red Hat JBoss Data Grid 7.1.0, and includes bug fixes and enhancements,
which are documented in the Release Notes linked to in the References.

Security Fix(es):

* It was found that Apache Lucene would accept an object from an
unauthenticated user that could be manipulated through subsequent post
requests. An attacker could use this flaw to assemble an object that could
permit execution of arbitrary code if the server enabled Apache Solr's
Config API. (CVE-2017-12629)

* It was found that when using remote logging with log4j socket server the
log4j server would deserialize any log event received via TCP or UDP. An
attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted log event that,
during deserialization, would execute arbitrary code in the context of the
logger application. (CVE-2017-5645)

* The hotrod java client in infinispan automatically deserializes bytearray
message contents in certain events. A malicious user could exploit this
flaw by injecting a specially-crafted serialized object to attain remote
code execution or conduct other attacks. (CVE-2016-0750)
