This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

The Sun JAVA JDK 1.4.2 was upgraded to release 15 to fix various bugs,
including the following security bugs :

- Integer overflow in the embedded ICC profile image
parser in Sun Java Development Kit (JDK), allows remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of
service (JVM crash) via a crafted JPEG or BMP file.
(CVE-2007-2788 / CVE-2007-3004)

- The BMP image parser in Sun Java Development Kit (JDK),
on Unix/Linux systems, allows remote attackers to
trigger the opening of arbitrary local files via a
crafted BMP file, which causes a denial of service
(system hang) in certain cases such as /dev/tty, and has
other unspecified impact. (CVE-2007-2789 /
CVE-2007-3005)

- Buffer overflow in Sun JDK and Java Runtime Environment
(JRE) allows applets to gain privileges via a GIF image
with a block with a 0 width field, which triggers memory
corruption. (CVE-2007-0243)
