Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 10.10 / 11.04 : icedtea-web, openjdk-6, openjdk-6b18 vulnerabilities (USN-1178-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2011-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2011-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Omair Majid discovered that an unsigned Web Start application or
applet could determine the path to the cache directory used to store
downloaded class and jar files by querying class loader properties.
This could allow a remote attacker to discover a user's name and home
directory path. (CVE-2011-2513)

Omair Majid discovered that an unsigned Web Start application could
manipulate the content of the security warning dialog message to show
different file names in prompts. This could allow a remote attacker to
confuse a user into granting access to a different file than they
believe they are granting access to. This issue only affected Ubuntu
11.04. (CVE-2011-2514).

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 icedtea-netx, icedtea-plugin and / or
icedtea6-plugin packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 6.8
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 5.9
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
