This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

The Sun JDK 5 was updated to Update18 to fix various bugs and security
issues.

CVE-2009-1093: LdapCtx in the LDAP service in Java SE Development Kit
(JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 17 and earlier; 6
Update 12 and earlier; SDK and JRE 1.3.1_24 and earlier; and 1.4.2_19
and earlier does not close the connection when initialization fails,
which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (LDAP
service hang).

CVE-2009-1094: Unspecified vulnerability in the LDAP implementation in
Java SE Development Kit (JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0
Update 17 and earlier; 6 Update 12 and earlier; SDK and JRE 1.3.1_24
and earlier; and 1.4.2_19 and earlier allows remote LDAP servers to
execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors related to serialized data.

CVE-2009-1095: Integer overflow in unpack200 in Java SE Development
Kit (JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 17 and
earlier, and 6 Update 12 and earlier, allows remote attackers to
access files or execute arbitrary code via a JAR file with crafted
Pack200 headers.

CVE-2009-1096: Buffer overflow in unpack200 in Java SE Development Kit
(JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 17 and earlier,
and 6 Update 12 and earlier, allows remote attackers to access files
or execute arbitrary code via a JAR file with crafted Pack200 headers.

CVE-2009-1098: Buffer overflow in Java SE Development Kit (JDK) and
Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 17 and earlier; 6 Update 12
and earlier; 1.4.2_19 and earlier; and 1.3.1_24 and earlier allows
remote attackers to access files or execute arbitrary code via a
crafted GIF image, aka CR 6804998.

CVE-2009-1099: Integer signedness error in Java SE Development Kit
(JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 17 and earlier,
and 6 Update 12 and earlier, allows remote attackers to access files
or execute arbitrary code via a crafted Type1 font, which triggers a
buffer overflow.

CVE-2009-1100: Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Java SE
Development Kit (JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 17
and earlier, and 6 Update 12 and earlier, allow remote attackers to
cause a denial of service (disk consumption) via vectors related to
temporary font files and (1) 'limits on Font creation,' aka CR
6522586, and (2) another unspecified vector, aka CR 6632886.

CVE-2009-1103: Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Plug-in in Java
SE Development Kit (JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update
17 and earlier; 6 Update 12 and earlier; 1.4.2_19 and earlier; and
1.3.1_24 and earlier allows remote attackers to access files and
execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors related to 'deserializing
applets,' aka CR 6646860.

CVE-2009-1104: The Java Plug-in in Java SE Development Kit (JDK) and
Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 17 and earlier; 6 Update 12
and earlier; and 1.4.2_19 and earlier does not prevent JavaScript that
is loaded from the localhost from connecting to other ports on the
system, which allows user-assisted attackers to bypass intended access
restrictions via LiveConnect, aka CR 6724331. NOTE: this vulnerability
can be leveraged with separate cross-site scripting (XSS)
vulnerabilities for remote attack vectors.

CVE-2009-1107: The Java Plug-in in Java SE Development Kit (JDK) and
Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 12 and earlier, and 5.0 Update
17 and earlier, allows remote attackers to trick a user into trusting
a signed applet via unknown vectors that misrepresent the security
warning dialog, related to a 'Swing JLabel HTML parsing
vulnerability,' aka CR 6782871.
