Sun Java JDK/JRE 6 < Update 7 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 33488
SynopsisThe remote Windows host has an application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.0 installed on the remote host is affected by multiple security issues :
- A vulnerability in the JRE could allow unauthorized access to certain URL resources or cause a denial of service condition while processing XML data. In order to successfully exploit this issue a JAX-WS client/service included with a trusted application should process the malicious XML content (238628).
- A vulnerability in the JRE may allow an untrusted applet to access information from another applet (238687).
- A buffer overflow vulnerability in Java Web Start could allow an untrusted applet to elevate its privileges to read, write and execute local applications available to users running an untrusted application (238905).
- A vulnerability in Java Web Start, could allow an untrusted application to create or delete arbitrary files subject to the privileges of the user running the application (238905).
- A vulnerability in Java Web Start, may disclose the location of Java Web Start cache (238905).
- An implementation defect in the JRE may allow an applet designed to run 'only' on JRE 5.0 Update 6 or later may run on older releases of the JRE. Note this only affects Windows Vista releases of the JRE (238966).
- Vulnerability in Sun Java Management Extensions (JMX) could allow a JMX client running on a remote host to perform unauthorized actions on a host running JMX with local monitoring enabled (238965).
- A vulnerability in the JRE could allow an untrusted applet / application to elevate its privileges to read, write and execute local applications with privileges of the user running an untrusted applet (238967,238687).
- A vulnerability in the JRE may allow an untrusted applet to establish connections to services running on the localhost and potentially exploit vulnerabilities existing in the underlying JRE (238968).
SolutionUpdate to Sun Java JDK and JRE 6 Update 7 or later and remove, if necessary, any affected versions.
