Sun Java JRE Multiple Vulnerabilities (254569 / 254611 / 254608 ..)

high Nessus Plugin ID 36034


The remote Windows host contains a runtime environment that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on the remote host is earlier than 6 Update 13 / 5.0 Update 18 / 1.4.2_20 / 1.3.1_25. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- A denial of service vulnerability affects the JRE LDAP implementation. (254569).

- A remote code execution vulnerability in the JRE LDAP implementation may allow for arbitrary code to be run in the context of the affected LDAP client. (254569)

- There are multiple integer and buffer overflow vulnerabilities when unpacking applets and Java Web Start applications using the 'unpack2000' utility.

- There are multiple denial of service vulnerabilities related to the storing and processing of temporary font files. (254608)

- A privilege-escalation vulnerability affects the Java Plug-in when deserializing applets. (254611)

- A weakness in the Java Plug-in allows JavaScript loaded from the localhost to connect to arbitrary ports on the local system. (254611)

- A vulnerability in the Java Plug-in allows malicious JavaScript code to exploit vulnerabilities in earlier versions of the JRE that have been loaded by an applet located on the same web page. (254611)

- An issue exists in the Java Plug-in when parsing 'crossdomain.xml' allows an untrusted applet to connect to an arbitrary site hosting a 'crossdomain.xml' file.

- The Java Plug-in allows a malicious signed applet to obscure the contents of a security dialog. (254611)

- The JRE Virtual Machine is affected by a privilege-escalation vulnerability. (254610)

- There are multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities involving the JRE's processing of PNG and GIF images.

- There are multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities involving the JRE's processing of fonts. (254571)

- A denial of service vulnerability affects the JRE HTTP server implementation, which could be used to cause a denial of service on a JAX-WS service endpoint. (254609)


Update to Sun Java JDK / JRE 6 Update 13, JDK / JRE 5.0 Update 18, SDK / JRE 1.4.2_20, or SDK / JRE 1.3.1_25 or later and remove, if necessary, any affected versions.
