High Nessus Plugin ID 42857

Synopsis

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

Description

The Sun Java 6 SDK/JRE was updated to u17 update fixing bugs and various security issues :

- The Java Web Start Installer in Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 6 before Update 17 does not properly use security model permissions when removing installer extensions, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by modifying a certain JNLP file to have a URL field that poi nts to an unintended trusted application, aka Bug Id 6872824. (CVE-2009-3866)

- Stack-based buffer overflow in the HsbParser.getSoundBank function in Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 22, JDK and JRE 6 before Update 17, SDK and JRE 1.3.x before 1.3.1_27, and SDK and JRE 1.4.x before 1.4.2_24 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a long file: URL in an argument, aka Bug Id 6854303. (CVE-2009-3867)

- Stack-based buffer overflow in the setDiffICM function in the Abstract Window Toolkit (AWT) in Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 22, JDK and JRE 6 before Update 17, SDK and JRE 1.3.x before 1.3.1_27, and SDK and JRE 1.4.x before 1.4.2_ 24 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted argument, aka Bug Id 6872357. (CVE-2009-3869)

- Heap-based buffer overflow in the setBytePixels function in the Abstract Window Toolkit (AWT) in Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 22, JDK and JRE 6 before Update 17, SDK and JRE 1.3.x before 1.3.1_27, and SDK and JRE 1.4.x before 1.4. 2_24 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via crafted arguments, aka Bug Id 6872358. (CVE-2009-3871)

- Integer overflow in the JPEGImageReader implementation in the ImageI/O component in Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 22, JDK and JRE 6 before Update 17, and SDK and JRE 1.4.x before 1.4.2_24 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via large subsample dimensi ons in a JPEG file that triggers a heap-based buffer overflow, aka Bug Id 6874643. (CVE-2009-3874)

- The MessageDigest.isEqual function in Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 22, JDK and JRE 6 befor e Update 17, SDK and JRE 1.3.x before 1.3.1_27, and SDK and JRE 1.4.x before 1.4.2_24 allows remote attackers to spoof HMAC-based digital si gnatures, and possibly bypass authentication, via unspecified vectors related to 'timing attack vulnerabilities,' aka Bug Id 6863503.
(CVE-2009-3875)

- Unspecified vulnerability in Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 22, JDK and JRE 6 before Update 17, SDK and JRE 1.3.x before 1.3.1 _27, and SDK and JRE 1.4.x before 1.4.2_24 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via crafted DER encoded data, which is not properly decoded by the ASN.1 DER input stream parser, aka Bug Id 6864911.
(CVE-2009-3876)

- Unspecified vulnerability in Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 22, JDK and JRE 6 before Update 17, SDK and JRE 1.3.x before 1.3.1 _27, and SDK and JRE 1.4.x before 1.4.2_24 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via crafted HTTP header s, which are not properly parsed by the ASN.1 DER input stream parser, aka Bug Id 6864911. (CVE-2009-3877)

- The Java Update functionality in Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 22 and JDK and JRE 6 before Update 17, when a non-English version of Windows is used, does not retrieve available new JRE versions, which allows remote attackers to lev erage vulnerabilities in older releases of this software, aka Bug Id 6869694. (CVE-2009-3864)

- The launch method in the Deployment Toolkit plugin in Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 6 before Update 17 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary commands via a crafted web page, aka Bug Id 6869752. (CVE-2009-3865)

- Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 22, JDK and JRE 6 before Update 17, SDK and JRE 1.3.x before 1.3.1_27, and SDK and JRE 1.4.x be fore 1.4.2_24 does not properly parse color profiles, which allows remote attackers to gain privileges via a crafted image file, aka Bug Id 6862970. (CVE-2009-3868)

- Unspecified vulnerability in the JPEG JFIF Decoder in Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 22, JDK and JRE 6 before Update 17, SDK a nd JRE 1.3.x before 1.3.1_27, and SDK and JRE 1.4.x before 1.4.2_24 allows remote attackers to gain privileges via a crafted image file, aka Bug Id 6862969. (CVE-2009-3872)

- The JPEG Image Writer in Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 22, JDK and JRE 6 before Update 17, and SDK and JRE 1.4.x before 1.4.2 _24 allows remote attackers to gain privileges via a crafted image file, related to a 'quanization problem,' aka Bug Id 6862968.
(CVE-2009-3873)
