Ubuntu 16.04 LTS / 17.04 : openjdk-8 regression (USN-3366-2)

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-3366-1 fixed vulnerabilities in OpenJDK 8. Unfortunately, that
update introduced a regression that caused some valid JAR files to
fail validation. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

It was discovered that the JPEGImageReader class in OpenJDK would
incorrectly read unused image data. An attacker could use this to
specially construct a jpeg image file that when opened by a Java
application would cause a denial of service. (CVE-2017-10053)

It was discovered that the JAR verifier in OpenJDK did not
properly handle archives containing files missing digests.
An attacker could use this to modify the signed contents of
a JAR file. (CVE-2017-10067)

It was discovered that integer overflows existed in the
Hotspot component of OpenJDK when generating range check
loop predicates. An attacker could use this to specially
construct an untrusted Java application or applet that could
escape sandbox restrictions and cause a denial of service or
possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-10074)

It was discovered that the JavaScript Scripting component of
OpenJDK incorrectly allowed access to Java APIs. An attacker
could use this to specially craft JavaScript code to bypass
access restrictions. (CVE-2017-10078)

It was discovered that OpenJDK did not properly process
parentheses in function signatures. An attacker could use
this to specially construct an untrusted Java application or
applet that could escape sandbox restrictions.
(CVE-2017-10081)

It was discovered that the ThreadPoolExecutor class in
OpenJDK did not properly perform access control checks when
cleaning up threads. An attacker could use this to specially
construct an untrusted Java application or applet that could
escape sandbox restrictions and possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2017-10087)

It was discovered that the ServiceRegistry implementation in
OpenJDK did not perform access control checks in certain
situations. An attacker could use this to specially
construct an untrusted Java application or applet that
escaped sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2017-10089)

It was discovered that the channel groups implementation in
OpenJDK did not properly perform access control checks in
some situations. An attacker could use this to specially
construct an untrusted Java application or applet that could
escape sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2017-10090)

It was discovered that the DTM exception handling code in
the JAXP component of OpenJDK did not properly perform
access control checks. An attacker could use this to
specially construct an untrusted Java application or applet
that could escape sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2017-10096)

It was discovered that the JAXP component of OpenJDK
incorrectly granted access to some internal resolvers. An
attacker could use this to specially construct an untrusted
Java application or applet that could escape sandbox
restrictions. (CVE-2017-10101)

It was discovered that the Distributed Garbage Collector
(DGC) in OpenJDK did not properly track references in some
situations. A remote attacker could possibly use this to
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-10102)

It was discovered that the Activation ID implementation in
the RMI component of OpenJDK did not properly check access
control permissions in some situations. An attacker could
use this to specially construct an untrusted Java
application or applet that could escape sandbox
restrictions. (CVE-2017-10107)

It was discovered that the BasicAttribute class in OpenJDK
did not properly bound memory allocation when de-serializing
objects. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of
service (memory consumption). (CVE-2017-10108)

It was discovered that the CodeSource class in OpenJDK did
not properly bound memory allocations when de-serializing
object instances. An attacker could use this to cause a
denial of service (memory consumption). (CVE-2017-10109)

It was discovered that the AWT ImageWatched class in OpenJDK
did not properly perform access control checks, An attacker
could use this to specially construct an untrusted Java
application or applet that could escape sandbox restrictions
(CVE-2017-10110)

Jackson Davis discovered that the LambdaFormEditor class in
the Libraries component of OpenJDK did not correctly perform
bounds checks in the permuteArgumentsForm() function. An
attacker could use this to specially construct an untrusted
Java application or applet that could escape sandbox
restrictions and possibly execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-10111)

It was discovered that a timing side-channel vulnerability
existed in the DSA implementation in OpenJDK. An attacker
could use this to expose sensitive information.
(CVE-2017-10115)

It was discovered that the LDAP implementation in OpenJDK
incorrectly followed references to non-LDAP URLs. An
attacker could use this to specially craft an LDAP referral
URL that exposes sensitive information or bypass access
restrictions. (CVE-2017-10116)

It was discovered that a timing side-channel vulnerability
existed in the ECDSA implementation in OpenJDK. An attacker
could use this to expose sensitive information.
(CVE-2017-10118)

Ilya Maykov discovered that a timing side-channel
vulnerability existed in the PKCS#8 implementation in
OpenJDK. An attacker could use this to expose sensitive
information. (CVE-2017-10135)

It was discovered that the Elliptic Curve (EC)
implementation in OpenJDK did not properly compute certain
elliptic curve points. An attacker could use this to expose
sensitive information. (CVE-2017-10176)

It was discovered that OpenJDK did not properly restrict
weak key sizes in some situations. An attacker could use
this to specially construct an untrusted Java application or
applet that could escape sandbox restrictions.
(CVE-2017-10193)

It was discovered that OpenJDK did not properly enforce
disabled algorithm restrictions on X.509 certificate chains.
An attacker could use this to expose sensitive information
or escape sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2017-10198)

It was discovered that OpenJDK did not properly perform
access control checks when handling Web Service Definition
Language (WSDL) XML documents. An attacker could use this to
expose sensitive information. (CVE-2017-10243).

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.
