Amazon Linux AMI : java-1.8.0-openjdk (ALAS-2017-860)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 101958
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

Incorrect enforcement of certificate path restrictions :

It was discovered that the Security component of OpenJDK could fail to properly enforce restrictions defined for processing of X.509 certificate chains. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to make Java accept certificate using one of the disabled algorithms.
(CVE-2017-10198)

Insufficient access control checks in XML transformations (CVE-2017-10096)

Incorrect range checks in LambdaFormEditor (CVE-2017-10111)

Insufficient access control checks in AsynchronousChannelGroupImpl (CVE-2017-10090)

Incorrect key size constraint check (CVE-2017-10193)

Integer overflows in range check loop predicates (CVE-2017-10074)

PKCS#8 implementation timing attack :

A covert timing channel flaw was found in the PKCS#8 implementation in the JCE component of OpenJDK. A remote attacker able to make a Java application repeatedly compare PKCS#8 key against an attacker controlled value could possibly use this flaw to determine the key via a timing side channel. (CVE-2017-10135)

Incorrect handling of references in DGC :

It was discovered that the DCG implementation in the RMI component of OpenJDK failed to correctly handle references. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of RMI registry or a Java RMI application. (CVE-2017-10102)

Insufficient access control checks in ImageWatched (CVE-2017-10110)

Unrestricted access to com.sun.org.apache.xml.internal.resolver (CVE-2017-10101)

DSA implementation timing attack :

A covert timing channel flaw was found in the DSA implementation in the JCE component of OpenJDK. A remote attacker able to make a Java application generate DSA signatures on demand could possibly use this flaw to extract certain information about the used key via a timing side channel. (CVE-2017-10115)

Insufficient access control checks in ActivationID (CVE-2017-10107)

LDAPCertStore following referrals to non-LDAP URLs :

It was discovered that the LDAPCertStore class in the Security component of OpenJDK followed LDAP referrals to arbitrary URLs. A specially crafted LDAP referral URL could cause LDAPCertStore to communicate with non-LDAP servers. (CVE-2017-10116)

JAR verifier incorrect handling of missing digest (CVE-2017-10067)

Reading of unprocessed image data in JPEGImageReader :

It was discovered that the JPEGImageReader implementation in the 2D component of OpenJDK would, in certain cases, read all image data even if it was not used later. A specially crafted image could cause a Java application to temporarily use an excessive amount of CPU and memory.
(CVE-2017-10053)

Unbounded memory allocation in CodeSource deserialization (CVE-2017-10109)

Unbounded memory allocation in BasicAttribute deserialization (CVE-2017-10108)

Solution

Run 'yum update java-1.8.0-openjdk' to update your system.
