SuSE9 Security Update : IBM Java 2 JRE and SDK (YOU Patch Number 12142)

High Nessus Plugin ID 41210

Synopsis

The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

IBM Java 1.4.2 was updated to SR10 to fix various security issues :

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in Java Web Start may allow an untrusted Java Web Start application that is downloaded from a website to elevate its privileges. For example, an untrusted Java Web Start application may grant itself permissions to read and write local files or execute local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted application. (CVE-2008-1196)

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment may allow JavaScript(TM) code that is downloaded by a browser to make connections to network services on the system that the browser runs on, through Java APIs, This may allow files (that are accessible through these network services) or vulnerabilities (that exist on these network services) which are not otherwise normally accessible to be accessed or exploited. (CVE-2008-1195)

- A vulnerability in the Java Plug-in may an untrusted applet to bypass same origin policy and leverage this flaw to execute local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet.
(CVE-2008-1192)

- A vulnerability in Java Web Start may allow an untrusted Java Web Start application to elevate its privileges.
For example, an application may grant itself permissions to read and write local files or execute local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted application. (CVE-2008-1190)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment may allow an untrusted applet or application to elevate its privileges. For example, an applet may grant itself permissions to read and write local files or execute local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2008-1189)

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with parsing XML data may allow an untrusted applet or application to elevate its privileges. For example, an applet may read certain URL resources (such as some files and web pages). (CVE-2008-1187)

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) with applet caching may allow an untrusted applet that is downloaded from a malicious website to make network connections to network services on machines other than the one that the applet was downloaded from. This may allow network resources (such as web pages) and vulnerabilities (that exist on these network services) which are not otherwise normally accessible to be accessed or exploited. (CVE-2007-5232)

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) may allow malicious JavaScript code that is downloaded by a browser from a malicious website to make network connections, through Java APIs, to network services on machines other than the one that the JavaScript code was downloaded from. This may allow network resources (such as web pages) and vulnerabilities (that exist on these network services) which are not otherwise normally accessible to be accessed or exploited. (CVE-2007-5274)

- A second vulnerability in the JRE may allow an untrusted applet that is downloaded from a malicious website through a web proxy to make network connections to network services on machines other than the one that the applet was downloaded from. This may allow network resources (such as web pages) and vulnerabilities (that exist on these network services) which are not otherwise normally accessible to be accessed or exploited.
(CVE-2007-5273)

- An untrusted Java Web Start application may write arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2007-5236)

- Three separate vulnerabilities may allow an untrusted Java Web Start application to determine the location of the Java Web Start cache. (CVE-2007-5238)

- An untrusted Java Web Start application or Java applet may move or copy arbitrary files by requesting the user of the application or applet to drag and drop a file from the Java Web Start application or Java applet window. (CVE-2007-5239)

- An untrusted applet may display an over-sized window so that the applet warning banner is not visible to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2007-5240)

- A vulnerability in the font parsing code in the Java Runtime Environment may allow an untrusted applet to elevate its privileges. For example, an applet may grant itself permissions to read and write local files or execute local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2007-4381)

- The Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) that is included in various releases of the Java Runtime Environment does not correctly process SSL/TLS handshake requests. This vulnerability may be exploited to create a Denial of Service (DoS) condition to the system as a whole on a server that listens for SSL/TLS connections using JSSE for SSL/TLS support. (CVE-2007-3698)
