AIX Java Advisory : java_april2015_advisory.asc (Bar Mitzvah) (FREAK)

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 AIX host is affected
by multiple vulnerabilities :

- The Global Security Kit (GSKit) contains a flaw due to
improper restrictions of TLS state transitions. A
man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this to downgrade
the security of a session to use EXPORT_RSA ciphers.
This allows the attacker to more easily break the
encryption and monitor or tamper with the encrypted
stream. (CVE-2015-0138)

- An unspecified flaw exists that allows an attacker to
execute code running under a security manager with
elevated privileges.(CVE-2015-0192)

- A security feature bypass vulnerability, known as FREAK
(Factoring attack on RSA-EXPORT Keys), exists due to the
support of weak EXPORT_RSA cipher suites with keys less
than or equal to 512 bits. A man-in-the-middle attacker
may be able to downgrade the SSL/TLS connection to use
EXPORT_RSA cipher suites which can be factored in a
short amount of time, allowing the attacker to intercept
and decrypt the traffic. (CVE-2015-0204)

- Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities exist in multiple
Java subcomponents including 2D, Beans, Deployment, JCE,
JSSE, and tools. (CVE-2015-0458, CVE-2015-0459,
CVE-2015-0469, CVE-2015-0477, CVE-2015-0478,
CVE-2015-0480, CVE-2015-0486, CVE-2015-0488,

- An unspecified flaw exists that allows a remote attacker
to bypass permission checks and gain access to sensitive
information. (CVE-2015-1914)

- An unspecified flaw exists due to the Socket Extension
Provider's handling of TLS and SSL connections. A remote
attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service.

- A security feature bypass vulnerability exists, known as
Bar Mitzvah, due to improper combination of state data
with key data by the RC4 cipher algorithm during the
initialization phase. A man-in-the-middle attacker can
exploit this, via a brute-force attack using LSB values,
to decrypt the traffic. (CVE-2015-2808)
