Article ID: KB25292

Type: Support Content

Last Modified: 02-06-2012


Product(s) Affected:

  • BES5
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server 5.0 SP2
The BlackBerry® Administration Service uses JBoss® and security patch 4.3.0.GA_CP08 has been released to correct vulnerabilities. Any patches for JBoss need to be formally tested and approved before being applied to the BlackBerry Administration Service. The version of JBoss on the server should not be modified without an approved release of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server at this time.The BlackBerry Administration Service does not use the affected components of JBoss mentioned in the security vulnerabilities and therefore they represent no real threat to the security of the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. Regardless of this, the JBoss security update 4.3.0.GA_CP08 is installed and used by BlackBerry Administration Service in BlackBerry® Enterprise Server 5.0 SP3.
