SuSE 10 Security Update : IBM Java (ZYPP Patch Number 7440)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

IBM Java 1.4.2 SR13 was updated to FP8 to fix various bugs and
security issues.

The following security issues were fixed :

- The kg_accept_krb5 function in krb5/accept_sec_context.c
in the GSS-API library in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5)
through 1.7.1 and 1.8 before 1.8.2, as used in kadmind
and other applications, does not properly check for
invalid GSS-API tokens, which allows remote
authenticated users to cause a denial of service (NULL
pointer dereference and daemon crash) via an AP-REQ
message in which the authenticator's checksum field is
missing. (CVE-2010-1321)

- Unspecified vulnerability in the Networking component in
Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 21, 5.0
Update 25, 1.4.2_27, and 1.3.1_28 allows remote
attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and
availability via unknown vectors. NOTE: the previous
information was obtained from the October 2010 CPU.
Oracle has not commented on claims from a reliable
downstream vendor that HttpURLConnection does not
properly check for the allowHttpTrace permission, which
allows untrusted code to perform HTTP TRACE requests.

- The Java Runtime Environment hangs forever when
converting '2.2250738585072012e-308' to a binary
floating-point number. (CVE-2010-4476)
