SuSE 11 Security Update : IBM Java 1.6.0 (SAT Patch Number 1058)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 41406

Synopsis

The remote SuSE 11 host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

IBM Java 6 SR 5 was released fixing various bugs and critical security issues :

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) with initializing LDAP connections may be exploited by a remote client to cause a denial-of-service condition on the LDAP service. (CVE-2009-1093)

- A vulnerability in Java Runtime Environment LDAP client implementation may allow malicious data from an LDAP server to cause malicious code to be unexpectedly loaded and executed on an LDAP client. (CVE-2009-1094)

- Buffer overflow vulnerabilities in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) with unpacking applets and Java Web Start applications using the unpack200 JAR unpacking utility may allow an untrusted applet or application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted 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-2009-1095 / CVE-2009-1096)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with processing PNG images may allow an untrusted Java Web Start application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted 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-2009-1097)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with processing GIF images may allow an untrusted Java Web Start application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted 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-2009-1097)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with processing GIF images may allow an untrusted applet or Java Web Start application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted 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-2009-1098)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with processing fonts may allow an untrusted applet or Java Web Start application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted 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-2009-1099)

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) with storing temporary font files may allow an untrusted applet or application to consume a disproportionate amount of disk space resulting in a denial-of-service condition. (CVE-2009-1100)

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) with processing temporary font files may allow an untrusted applet or application to retain temporary files resulting in a denial-of-service condition.
(CVE-2009-1100)

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) HTTP server implementation may allow a remote client to create a denial-of-service condition on a JAX-WS service endpoint that runs on the JRE. (CVE-2009-1101)

- A vulnerability in the Java Plug-in with deserializing applets may allow an untrusted applet to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted 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-2009-1103)

- The Java Plug-in allows JavaScript code that is loaded from the localhost to connect to any port on the system.
This may be leveraged together with XSS vulnerabilities in a blended attack to access other applications listening on ports other than the one where the JavaScript code was served from. (CVE-2009-1104)

- The Java Plug-in allows a trusted applet to be launched on an earlier version of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) provided the user that downloaded the applet allows it to run on the requested release. A vulnerability allows JavaScript code that is present in the same web page as the applet to exploit known vulnerabilities of the requested JRE. (CVE-2009-1105)

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with parsing crossdomain.xml files may allow an untrusted applet to connect to any site that provides a crossdomain.xml file instead of sites that allow the domain that the applet is running on. (CVE-2009-1106)

- The Java Plugin displays a warning dialog for signed applets. A signed applet can obscure the contents of the dialog and trick a user into trusting the applet.
(CVE-2009-1107)

Solution

Apply SAT patch number 1058.
