SuSE 11 Security Update : IBM Java 1.6.0 (SAT Patch Number 1058)

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


Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

IBM Java 6 SR 5 was released fixing various bugs and critical security
issues :

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
with initializing LDAP connections may be exploited by a
remote client to cause a denial-of-service condition on
the LDAP service. (CVE-2009-1093)

- A vulnerability in Java Runtime Environment LDAP client
implementation may allow malicious data from an LDAP
server to cause malicious code to be unexpectedly loaded
and executed on an LDAP client. (CVE-2009-1094)

- Buffer overflow vulnerabilities in the Java Runtime
Environment (JRE) with unpacking applets and Java Web
Start applications using the unpack200 JAR unpacking
utility may allow an untrusted applet or application to
escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted applet
may grant itself permissions to read and write local
files or execute local applications that are accessible
to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2009-1095
/ CVE-2009-1096)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime
Environment with processing PNG images may allow an
untrusted Java Web Start application to escalate
privileges. For example, an untrusted application may
grant itself permissions to read and write local files
or execute local applications that are accessible to the
user running the untrusted application. (CVE-2009-1097)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime
Environment with processing GIF images may allow an
untrusted Java Web Start application to escalate
privileges. For example, an untrusted application may
grant itself permissions to read and write local files
or execute local applications that are accessible to the
user running the untrusted application. (CVE-2009-1097)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime
Environment with processing GIF images may allow an
untrusted applet or Java Web Start application to
escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted applet
may grant itself permissions to read and write local
files or execute local applications that are accessible
to the user running the untrusted applet.
(CVE-2009-1098)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime
Environment with processing fonts may allow an untrusted
applet or Java Web Start application to escalate
privileges. For example, an untrusted applet may grant
itself permissions to read and write local files or
execute local applications that are accessible to the
user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2009-1099)

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
with storing temporary font files may allow an untrusted
applet or application to consume a disproportionate
amount of disk space resulting in a denial-of-service
condition. (CVE-2009-1100)

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
with processing temporary font files may allow an
untrusted applet or application to retain temporary
files resulting in a denial-of-service condition.
(CVE-2009-1100)

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
HTTP server implementation may allow a remote client to
create a denial-of-service condition on a JAX-WS service
endpoint that runs on the JRE. (CVE-2009-1101)

- A vulnerability in the Java Plug-in with deserializing
applets may allow an untrusted applet to escalate
privileges. For example, an untrusted applet may grant
itself permissions to read and write local files or
execute local applications that are accessible to the
user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2009-1103)

- The Java Plug-in allows JavaScript code that is loaded
from the localhost to connect to any port on the system.
This may be leveraged together with XSS vulnerabilities
in a blended attack to access other applications
listening on ports other than the one where the
JavaScript code was served from. (CVE-2009-1104)

- The Java Plug-in allows a trusted applet to be launched
on an earlier version of the Java Runtime Environment
(JRE) provided the user that downloaded the applet
allows it to run on the requested release. A
vulnerability allows JavaScript code that is present in
the same web page as the applet to exploit known
vulnerabilities of the requested JRE. (CVE-2009-1105)

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with
parsing crossdomain.xml files may allow an untrusted
applet to connect to any site that provides a
crossdomain.xml file instead of sites that allow the
domain that the applet is running on. (CVE-2009-1106)

- The Java Plugin displays a warning dialog for signed
applets. A signed applet can obscure the contents of the
dialog and trick a user into trusting the applet.
(CVE-2009-1107)
