Sun Java JRE XML Signature Command Injection (102993)

High Nessus Plugin ID 25709


The remote Windows host has an application that may allow arbitrary command injection.


The version of Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on the remote host reportedly does not securely process XSLT stylesheets containing XSLT Transforms in XML Signatures. If an attacker can pass a specially crafted XSLT stylesheet to a trusted Java application running on the remote host, arbitrary code could be executed, subject to the privileges under which the application operates.


Upgrade to Sun Java JDK and JRE 6 Update 2 or later and remove any affected versions.
