An update for the OpenSSL packages for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application
Platform 6.3 that fixes multiple security issues is now available from the

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 is a platform for Java
applications based on JBoss Application Server 7.
OpenSSL is a toolkit that implements the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL),
Transport Layer Security (TLS), and Datagram Transport Layer Security
(DTLS) protocols, as well as a full-strength, general purpose cryptography
It was discovered that the OBJ_obj2txt() function could fail to properly
NUL-terminate its output. This could possibly cause an application using
OpenSSL functions to format fields of X.509 certificates to disclose
portions of its memory. (CVE-2014-3508)
Two flaws were discovered in the way OpenSSL handled DTLS packets. A remote
attacker could use these flaws to cause a DTLS server or client using
OpenSSL to crash or use excessive amounts of memory. (CVE-2014-3505,
A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the way OpenSSL performed a
handshake when using the anonymous Diffie-Hellman (DH) key exchange. A
malicious server could cause a DTLS client using OpenSSL to crash if that
client had anonymous DH cipher suites enabled. (CVE-2014-3510)
All users of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6.3.0 as
provided from the Red Hat Customer Portal are advised to apply this update.
The JBoss server process must be restarted for the update to take effect.
