EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : java-1.8.0-openjdk (EulerOS-SA-2017-1074)

Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description :

According to the versions of the java-1.8.0-openjdk packages
installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by
the following vulnerabilities :

- An untrusted library search path flaw was found in the
JCE component of OpenJDK. A local attacker could
possibly use this flaw to cause a Java application
using JCE to load an attacker-controlled library and
hence escalate their privileges. (CVE-2017-3511)

- It was found that the JAXP component of OpenJDK failed
to correctly enforce parse tree size limits when
parsing XML document. An attacker able to make a Java
application parse a specially crafted XML document
could use this flaw to make it consume an excessive
amount of CPU and memory. (CVE-2017-3526)

- It was discovered that the HTTP client implementation
in the Networking component of OpenJDK could cache and
re-use an NTLM authenticated connection in a different
security context. A remote attacker could possibly use
this flaw to make a Java application perform HTTP
requests authenticated with credentials of a different
user. (CVE-2017-3509)

- It was discovered that the Security component of
OpenJDK did not allow users to restrict the set of
algorithms allowed for Jar integrity verification. This
flaw could allow an attacker to modify content of the
Jar file that used weak signing key or hash algorithm.
(CVE-2017-3539)

- Newline injection flaws were discovered in FTP and SMTP
client implementations in the Networking component in
OpenJDK. A remote attacker could possibly use these
flaws to manipulate FTP or SMTP connections established
by a Java application. (CVE-2017-3533, CVE-2017-3544)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
