GLSA-200709-15 : BEA JRockit: Multiple vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 26117


The remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.


The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200709-15 (BEA JRockit: Multiple vulnerabilities)

An integer overflow vulnerability exists in the embedded ICC profile image parser (CVE-2007-2788), an unspecified vulnerability exists in the font parsing implementation (CVE-2007-4381), and an error exists when processing XSLT stylesheets contained in XSLT Transforms in XML signatures (CVE-2007-3716), among other vulnerabilities.
Impact :

A remote attacker could trigger the integer overflow to execute arbitrary code or crash the JVM through a specially crafted file. Also, an attacker could perform unauthorized actions via an applet that grants certain privileges to itself because of the font parsing vulnerability. The error when processing XSLT stylesheets can be exploited to execute arbitrary code. Other vulnerabilities could lead to establishing restricted network connections to certain services, Cross Site Scripting and Denial of Service attacks.
Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time for all these vulnerabilities.


All BEA JRockit users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-java/jrockit-jdk-bin-'
