openSUSE Security Update : java-1_6_0-openjdk (java-1_6_0-openjdk-1252)

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


Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

The XML signature checker did not impose limits on the minimum length
of HMAC signatures in XML documentes. Attackers could therefore
specify a length of e.g. 1 to make the signature appear valid and
therefore effectively bypass verification of XML documents.
(CVE-2009-0217) The WebStart component does not allow to run unsigned
code in some cases. (CVE-2009-1896) A NULL pointer dereference was
fixed in the LittleCMS component. (CVE-2009-0793)
