Description :

The Sun JAVA JDK 1.6.0 was upgraded to release 3 to fix various bugs,
including the following security bugs :

http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-26-103 079-1

CVE-2007-5232: Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in JDK and JRE 6
Update 2 and earlier, JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 12 and earlier, SDK and
JRE 1.4.2_15 and earlier, and SDK and JRE 1.3.1_20 and earlier, when
applet caching is enabled, allows remote attackers to violate the
security model for an applet's outbound connections via a DNS
rebinding attack.

CVE-2007-5236: Java Web Start in Sun JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 12 and
earlier, and SDK and JRE 1.4.2_15 and earlier, on Windows does not
properly enfor ce access restrictions for untrusted applications,
which allows user-assisted remote attackers to read local files via an
untrusted applica tion.

CVE-2007-5237: Java Web Start in Sun JDK and JRE 6 Update 2 and
earlier does not properly enforce access restrictions for untrusted
applications, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to read and
modify local files via an untrusted application, aka 'two
vulnerabilities'.

CVE-2007-5238: Java Web Start in Sun JDK and JRE 6 Update 2 and
earlier, JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 12 and earlier, and SDK and JRE
1.4.2_15 and earlier does not properly enforce access restrictions for
untrusted applications, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to
obtain sensitive information (the Java Web Start cache location) via
an untrusted application, aka 'three vulnerabilities.'

CVE-2007-5239: Java Web Start in Sun JDK and JRE 6 Update 2 and
earlier, JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 12 and earlier, SDK and JRE 1.4.2_15
and earlier, and SDK and JRE 1.3.1_20 and earlier does not properly
enforce access restrictions for untrusted (1) applications and (2)
applets, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to copy or rename
arbitrary files when local users perform drag-and-drop operations from
the untrusted application or applet window onto certain types of
desktop applications.

CVE-2007-5240: Visual truncation vulnerability in the Java Runtime
Environment in Sun JDK and JRE 6 Update 2 and earlier, JDK and JRE 5.0
Update 12 and earlier, SDK and JRE 1.4.2_15 and earlier, and SDK and
JRE 1.3.1_20 and earlier allows remote attackers to circumvent display
of the untrusted-code warning banner by creating a window larger than
the workstation screen.

CVE-2007-5273: Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in JDK and JRE 6
Update 2 and earlier, JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 12 and earlier, SDK and
JRE 1.4.2_15 and earlier, and SDK and JRE 1.3.1_20 and earlier, when
an HTTP proxy server is used, allows remote attackers to violate the
security model for an applet's outbound connections via a multi-pin
DNS rebinding attack in which the applet download relies on DNS
resolution on the proxy server, but the applet's socket operations
rely on DNS resolution on the local machine, a different issue than
CVE-2007-5274.

CVE-2007-5274: Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in JDK and JRE 6
Update 2 and earlier, JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 12 and earlier, SDK and
JRE 1.4.2_15 and earlier, and SDK and JRE 1.3.1_20 and earlier, when
Firefox or Opera is used, allows remote attackers to violate the
security model for JavaScript outbound connections via a multi-pin DNS
rebinding attack dependent on the LiveConnect API, in which JavaScript
download relies on DNS resolution by the browser, but JavaScript
socket operations rely on separate DNS resolution by a Java Virtual
Machine (JVM), a different issue than CVE-2007-5273.
