AIX Java Advisory : java_oct2014_advisory.asc (POODLE)

Synopsis :

The remote AIX host has a version of Java SDK installed that is
affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Java SDK installed on the remote host is affected by
the following vulnerabilities :

- A privilege escalation vulnerability in the IBM Java SDK
allows a local attacker to inject arbitrary code into
the shared classes cache due to a flaw in the default
configuration for the shared classes feature. Other
users are able to execute the injected code, which can
allow the attacker to gain elevated privileges.
(CVE-2014-3065)

- Oracle Java contains the flaw related to SSLv3 CBC-mode
ciphers known as POODLE. The vulnerability is due to the
way SSL 3.0 handles padding bytes when decrypting
messages encrypted using block ciphers in cipher block
chaining (CBC) mode. A man-in-the-middle attacker can
decrypt a selected byte of a cipher text in as few as
256 tries if they are able to force a victim application
to repeatedly send the same data over newly created SSL
3.0 connections. (CVE-2014-3566)

- Vulnerabilities in Oracle Java allow remote code
execution via flaws in the Deployment subcomponent.
(CVE-2014-4288, CVE-2014-6492, CVE-2014-6493,
CVE-2014-6503, CVE-2014-6532)

- A session hijacking vulnerability exists in Oracle Java
due to a flaw related to handling of server certificate
changes during SSL/TLS renegotiation. This allows an
attacker to intercept communication between a client and
server to hijack a mutually authenticated session.
(CVE-2014-6457)

- Privilege escalation vulnerabilities exist in Oracle
Java within the the Deployment subcomponent.
(CVE-2014-6458, CVE-2014-6466)

- Data integrity vulnerabilities exist in Oracle Java
within the the Deployment subcomponent. (CVE-2014-6476,
CVE-2014-6515, CVE-2014-6527)

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in Oracle
Java in the resource bundle handling code of the
'LogRecord::readObject' function within the file
'share/classes/java/util/logging/LogRecord.java',
which allows an attacker to bypass certain sandbox
restrictions. (CVE-2014-6502)

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in Oracle
Java within the property processing and name handling
code of 'share/classes/java/util/ResourceBundle.java',
which allows an attacker to bypass certain sandbox
restrictions. (CVE-2014-6506)

- Oracle Java contains an unspecified vulnerability in the
2D subcomponent. (CVE-2014-6511)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists in Oracle
Java due to a flaw related to the wrapping of datagram
sockets in the DatagramSocket implementation. This issue
may cause packets to be read that originate from other
sources than the connected, thus allowing a remote
attacker to carry out IP spoofing. (CVE-2014-6512)

- A flaw exists in the way splash images are handled by
'windows/native/sun/awt/splashscreen/splashscreen_sys.c'
which allows remote code execution. (CVE-2014-6513)

- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in Oracle
Java in 'share/classes/java/util/logging/Logger.java'
because it fails to check permissions in certain cases,
allowing an attacker to bypass sandbox restrictions and
view or edit logs. (CVE-2014-6531)

- A flaw related to input cipher streams within the file
'share/classes/javax/crypto/CipherInputStream.java' can
allow a remote attacker to affect the data integrity.
(CVE-2014-6558)
