Ubuntu 8.04 LTS / 9.04 / 9.10 / 10.04 LTS : fastjar vulnerability (USN-953-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2010-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2010-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Dan Rosenberg discovered that fastjar incorrectly handled file paths
containing '..' when unpacking archives. If a user or an automated
system were tricked into unpacking a specially crafted jar file,
arbitrary files could be overwritten with user privileges.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected fastjar package.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.8
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:P)
