Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Multiple security vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in
Little cms library embedded in OpenJDK :

A memory leak flaw allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (memory consumption and application crash) via a crafted image
file (CVE-2009-0581).

Multiple integer overflows allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary
code via a crafted image file that triggers a heap-based buffer
overflow (CVE-2009-0723).

Multiple stack-based buffer overflows allow remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code via a crafted image file associated with a
large integer value for the (1) input or (2) output channel
(CVE-2009-0733).

A flaw in the transformations of monochrome profiles allows remote
attackers to cause denial of service triggered by a NULL pointer
dereference via a crafted image file (CVE-2009-0793).

Further security fixes in the JRE and in the Java API of OpenJDK :

A flaw in handling temporary font files by the Java Virtual Machine
(JVM) allows remote attackers to cause denial of service
(CVE-2006-2426).

An integer overflow flaw was found in Pulse-Java when handling Pulse
audio source data lines. An attacker could use this flaw to cause an
applet to crash, leading to a denial of service (CVE-2009-0794).

A flaw in Java Runtime Environment initialized LDAP connections allows
authenticated remote users to cause denial of service on the LDAP
service (CVE-2009-1093).

A flaw in the Java Runtime Environment LDAP client in handling server
LDAP responses allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
the client side via malicious server response (CVE-2009-1094).

Buffer overflows in the the Java Runtime Environment unpack200 utility
allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via an crafted applet
(CVE-2009-1095, CVE-2009-1096).

A buffer overflow in the splash screen processing allows a attackers
to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2009-1097).

A buffer overflow in GIF images handling allows remote attackers to
execute arbitrary code via an crafted GIF image (CVE-2009-1098).

A flaw in the Java API for XML Web Services (JAX-WS) service endpoint
handling allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service on the
service endpoint's server side (CVE-2009-1101).

A flaw in the Java Runtime Environment Virtual Machine code generation
allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted applet
(CVE-2009-1102).

This update provides fixes for these issues.

Update :

java-1.6.0-openjdk requires rhino packages and these has been further
updated.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)
CVSS Temporal Score : 8.3
(CVSS2#E:F/RL:OF/RC:ND)
Public Exploit Available : true
