          Ensure the machine has a JDK with proper path. Check your system environment variables, whether powershell.exe path is correct or not?

          If you tried to use the plugin or to execute an external file try to re-check the file path

            This appears to be an attack/attempt to hack your server and is related to this CVE CVE-2017-12149 - Red Hat Customer Portal . I highly recommend you either upgrade your server to a version which isn't affected by this or do necessary steps to isolate and quarantine the server until you can patch this issue either yourself, or by using JBoss EAP with support. Read through that CVE and you'll even find the steps to mitigate this.

              thanks for your reply. Anywhere CVE-2015-7501  and CVE-2017-12149 is related to each other ? Can we remove commons-collections.jar from our war files to avoid this exploit ?

                To add more information, this application is running in Linux server. cmd.exe and poweshell.exe are not been invoked from the web applications which is running on the server. Even in jboss eap layer we havent configured any such properties. Still wonder where it is  coming from ??

                  As noted in my previous reply, this isn't something that your application is doing. Instead, this appears to be an attempt (through a well crafted HTTP request) to hack your server due to a security bug in one of the default applications that is shipped in this version of JBoss AS. The linked CVE, in my previous reply, has more details on what it is and how to mitigate it (one of which is removing that default application, http-invoker.sar, from your installation if you aren't using it).
