Ubuntu 14.04 LTS : openjdk-7 regression (USN-3275-3)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2017 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

USN-3275-2 fixed vulnerabilities in OpenJDK 7. Unfortunately, the
update introduced a regression when handling TLS handshakes. This
update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

It was discovered that OpenJDK improperly re-used cached NTLM
connections in some situations. A remote attacker could possibly use
this to cause a Java application to perform actions with the
credentials of a different user. (CVE-2017-3509)

It was discovered that an untrusted library search path flaw
existed in the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) component
of OpenJDK. A local attacker could possibly use this to gain
the privileges of a Java application. (CVE-2017-3511)

It was discovered that the Java API for XML Processing
(JAXP) component in OpenJDK did not properly enforce size
limits when parsing XML documents. An attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (processor and memory
consumption). (CVE-2017-3526)

It was discovered that the FTP client implementation in
OpenJDK did not properly sanitize user inputs. If a user was
tricked into opening a specially crafted FTP URL, a remote
attacker could use this to manipulate the FTP connection.
(CVE-2017-3533)

It was discovered that OpenJDK allowed MD5 to be used as an
algorithm for JAR integrity verification. An attacker could
possibly use this to modify the contents of a JAR file
without detection. (CVE-2017-3539)

It was discovered that the SMTP client implementation in
OpenJDK did not properly sanitize sender and recipient
addresses. A remote attacker could use this to specially
craft email addresses and gain control of a Java
application's SMTP connections. (CVE-2017-3544).

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 packages.
