Ubuntu 8.10 / 9.04 : openjdk-6 vulnerabilities (USN-814-1)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 40547
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

It was discovered that the XML HMAC signature system did not correctly check certain lengths. If an attacker sent a truncated HMAC, it could bypass authentication, leading to potential privilege escalation.
(CVE-2009-0217)

It was discovered that JAR bundles would appear signed if only one element was signed. If a user were tricked into running a malicious Java applet, a remote attacker could exploit this to gain access to private information and potentially run untrusted code.
(CVE-2009-1896)

It was discovered that certain variables could leak information. If a user were tricked into running a malicious Java applet, a remote attacker could exploit this to gain access to private information and potentially run untrusted code. (CVE-2009-2475, CVE-2009-2690)

A flaw was discovered the OpenType checking. If a user were tricked into running a malicious Java applet, a remote attacker could bypass access restrictions. (CVE-2009-2476)

It was discovered that the XML processor did not correctly check recursion. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted XML, the system could crash, leading to a denial of service. (CVE-2009-2625)

It was discovered that the Java audio subsystem did not correctly validate certain parameters. If a user were tricked into running an untrusted applet, a remote attacker could read system properties.
(CVE-2009-2670)

Multiple flaws were discovered in the proxy subsystem. If a user were tricked into running an untrusted applet, a remote attacker could discover local user names, obtain access to sensitive information, or bypass socket restrictions, leading to a loss of privacy.
(CVE-2009-2671, CVE-2009-2672, CVE-2009-2673)

Flaws were discovered in the handling of JPEG images, Unpack200 archives, and JDK13Services. If a user were tricked into running an untrusted applet, a remote attacker could load a specially crafted file that would bypass local file access protections and run arbitrary code with user privileges. (CVE-2009-2674, CVE-2009-2675, CVE-2009-2676, CVE-2009-2689).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
