SuSE 10 Security Update : IBM Java 5 (ZYPP Patch Number 6253)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 41528

Synopsis

The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

The update brings IBM Java 5 to SR9-SSU.

It fixes a lot of security issues: CVE-2009-1100: 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.

- 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 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)

- 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)

- 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)

- 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 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)
