Synopsis

IBM Java is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of IBM Java installed on the remote host is prior to 6.0 < 6.0.16.45 / 6.1 < 6.1.8.45 / 7.0 < 7.0.10.5 / 7.1 < 7.1.4.5 / 8.0 < 8.0.4.5. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the Oracle April 18 2017 CPU advisory.

- Vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded component of Oracle Java SE (subcomponent: Networking).
Supported versions that are affected are Java SE: 6u141, 7u131 and 8u121; Java SE Embedded: 8u121.
Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized update, insert or delete access to some of Java SE, Java SE Embedded accessible data as well as unauthorized read access to a subset of Java SE, Java SE Embedded accessible data. Note: This vulnerability applies to Java deployments, typically in clients running sandboxed Java Web Start applications or sandboxed Java applets, that load and run untrusted code (e.g., code that comes from the internet) and rely on the Java sandbox for security. This vulnerability does not apply to Java deployments, typically in servers, that load and run only trusted code (e.g., code installed by an administrator). (CVE-2017-3509)

- Vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit component of Oracle Java SE (subcomponent: JCE).
Supported versions that are affected are Java SE: 7u131 and 8u121; Java SE Embedded: 8u121; JRockit:
R28.3.13. Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit executes to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker and while the vulnerability is in Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit, attacks may significantly impact additional products. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit. Note: Applies to client and server deployment of Java. This vulnerability can be exploited through sandboxed Java Web Start applications and sandboxed Java applets. It can also be exploited by supplying data to APIs in the specified Component without using sandboxed Java Web Start applications or sandboxed Java applets, such as through a web service. (CVE-2017-3511)

- Vulnerability in the Java SE component of Oracle Java SE (subcomponent: AWT). Supported versions that are affected are Java SE: 7u131 and 8u121. Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker and while the vulnerability is in Java SE, attacks may significantly impact additional products. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of Java SE. Note: This vulnerability applies to Java deployments, typically in clients running sandboxed Java Web Start applications or sandboxed Java applets, that load and run untrusted code (e.g., code that comes from the internet) and rely on the Java sandbox for security. This vulnerability does not apply to Java deployments, typically in servers, that load and run only trusted code (e.g., code installed by an administrator). (CVE-2017-3512)

- Vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit component of Oracle Java SE (subcomponent:
Networking). Supported versions that are affected are Java SE: 6u141, 7u131 and 8u121; Java SE Embedded:
8u121; JRockit: R28.3.13. Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via FTP to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized update, insert or delete access to some of Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit accessible data. Note: Applies to client and server deployment of Java. This vulnerability can be exploited through sandboxed Java Web Start applications and sandboxed Java applets. It can also be exploited by supplying data to APIs in the specified Component without using sandboxed Java Web Start applications or sandboxed Java applets, such as through a web service. (CVE-2017-3533)

- Vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded component of Oracle Java SE (subcomponent: Security).
Supported versions that are affected are Java SE: 6u141, 7u131 and 8u121; Java SE Embedded: 8u121.
Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker.

This vulnerability does not apply to Java deployments, typically in servers, that load and run only trusted code (e.g., code installed by an administrator). (CVE-2017-3539)

- Vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit component of Oracle Java SE (subcomponent:
Networking). Supported versions that are affected are Java SE: 6u141, 7u131 and 8u121; Java SE Embedded:
8u121; JRockit: R28.3.13. Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via SMTP to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized update, insert or delete access to some of Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit accessible data. Note: Applies to client and server deployment of Java. This vulnerability can be exploited through sandboxed Java Web Start applications and sandboxed Java applets. It can also be exploited by supplying data to APIs in the specified Component without using sandboxed Java Web Start applications or sandboxed Java applets, such as through a web service. (CVE-2017-3544)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
