Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

The Sun Java JRE /JDK 5 was updated to Update 20 fixing various
security issues.

CVE-2009-2670: The audio system in Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
in JDK and JRE 6 before Update 15, and JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update
20, does not prevent access to java.lang.System properties by (1)
untrusted applets and (2) Java Web Start applications, which allows
context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive information by reading
these properties.

CVE-2009-2671: The SOCKS proxy implementation in Sun Java Runtime
Environment (JRE) in JDK and JRE 6 before Update 15, and JDK and JRE
5.0 before Update 20, allows remote attackers to discover the username
of the account that invoked an untrusted (1) applet or (2) Java Web
Start application via unspecified vectors.

CVE-2009-2672: The proxy mechanism implementation in Sun Java Runtime
Environment (JRE) in JDK and JRE 6 before Update 15, and JDK and JRE
5.0 before Update 20, does not prevent access to browser cookies by
untrusted (1) applets and (2) Java Web Start applications, which
allows remote attackers to hijack web sessions via unspecified
vectors.

CVE-2009-2673: The proxy mechanism implementation in Sun Java Runtime
Environment (JRE) in JDK and JRE 6 before Update 15, and JDK and JRE
5.0 before Update 20, allows remote attackers to bypass intended
access restrictions and connect to arbitrary sites via unspecified
vectors, related to a declaration that lacks the final keyword.

CVE-2009-2674: Integer overflow in Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
in JDK and JRE 6 before Update 15 allows context-dependent attackers
to gain privileges via vectors involving an untrusted Java Web Start
application that grants permissions to itself, related to parsing of
JPEG images.

CVE-2009-2675: Integer overflow in the unpack200 utility in Sun Java
Runtime Environment (JRE) in JDK and JRE 6 before Update 15, and JDK
and JRE 5.0 before Update 20, allows context-dependent attackers to
gain privileges via vectors involving an untrusted (1) applet or (2)
Java Web Start application that grants permissions to itself, related
to decompression.

CVE-2009-2676: Unspecified vulnerability in JNLPAppletlauncher in Sun
Java SE, and SE for Business, in JDK and JRE 6 Update 14 and earlier
+and JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 19 and earlier; and Java SE for Business
in SDK and JRE 1.4.2_21 and earlier; allows remote attackers to create
or modify arbitrary files via vectors involving an untrusted Java
applet.
