1. Impact

   A security vulnerability in various releases of Sun Java System
   Application Server may allow source code exposure of JSPs on the
   Windows platform. This would allow unauthorized remote users the
   ability to view critical source code.

2. Contributing Factors

   This issue can occur in the following releases:

   Windows Platform
     * Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.1 without
       file-based patch 119172-18 or package-based patch 122848-11
     * Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8.1 without
       file-based patch 119176-18
     * Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.2 without
       file-based patch 124678-02 or package-based patch 124684-03
     * Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8.2 without
       file-based patch 124682-02
     * Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 9.0

   Note 1: This issue only affects the listed products on the Windows
   platform.

   Note 2: There are Sun Java System Application Server patches for
   non-Windows platforms which reference this bugID, 6569427, since the
   code changes were applied to all platforms even though only the
   Windows platform is affected.

3. Symptoms

   There are no reliable symptoms that would indicate the described
   issues have been exploited, other than the source code of the JSPs
   being exposed. 

4. Relief/Workaround

   There is no workaround. Please see the "Resolution" section below.

5. Resolution

   This issue is addressed in the following releases:

   Windows Platform
     * Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.1 with
       file-based patch 119172-18 or package-based patch 122848-11
       or later
     * Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8.1 with
       file-based patch 119176-18 or later
     * Sun Java System Application Server Enterprise Edition 8.2 with
       file-based patch 124678-02 or package-based patch
       124684-03 or later
     * Sun Java System Application Server Platform Edition 8.2 with
       file-based patch 124682-02 or later

   Final resolution is pending completion for Sun Java System Application
   Server Platform Edition 9.0
