Sun Java JRE GIF Image Handling Buffer Overflow (102760) (Unix)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Unix host has a version of Sun's Java Runtime Environment
that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.

Description :

According to its version number, the Sun JRE running on the remote host
has a buffer overflow issue that can be triggered when parsing a GIF
image with the image width in an image block set to 0. If an attacker
can trick a user on the affected system into processing a specially
crafted image file, say by visiting a malicious website, the attacker
may be able to leverage this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the
affected system subject to the user's privileges.
