SuSE9 Security Update : IBM Java 1.5.0 (YOU Patch Number 12564)

High Nessus Plugin ID 43599

Synopsis

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

Description

IBM Java 5 was updated to Service Refresh 11. It fixes lots of bugs and security issues. It also contains a timezone update for the current Fiji change (timezone 1.6.9s).

The update fixes the following security issues :

- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with decoding DER encoded data might allow a remote client to cause the JRE to crash, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2009-3876, CVE-2009-3877)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment audio system might allow an untrusted applet or Java Web Start application to escalate privileges.
For example, an untrusted applet might grant itself permissions to read and write local files, or run local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2009-3867)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with parsing image files might allow an untrusted applet or Java Web Start application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted applet might grant itself permissions to read and write local files, or run local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2009-3868)

- An integer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with reading JPEG files might allow an untrusted applet or Java Web Start application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted applet might grant itself permissions to read and write local files, or run local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2009-3872)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with processing JPEG files might allow an untrusted applet or Java Web Start application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted applet might grant itself permissions to read and write local files, or run local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2009-3873)

- A security vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with verifying HMAC digests might allow authentication to be bypassed. This action can allow a user to forge a digital signature that would be accepted as valid.
Applications that validate HMAC-based digital signatures might be vulnerable to this type of attack.
(CVE-2009-3875)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with processing image files might allow an untrusted applet or Java Web Start application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted applet might grant itself permissions to read and write local files or run local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2009-3869)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with processing image files might allow an untrusted applet or Java Web Start application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted applet might grant itself permissions to read and write local files or run local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2009-3871)

- An integer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment with processing JPEG images might allow an untrusted applet or Java Web Start application to escalate privileges. For example, an untrusted applet might grant itself permissions to read and write local files or run local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2009-3874)

- The Java Runtime Environment includes the Java Web Start technology that uses the Java Web Start ActiveX control to launch Java Web Start in Internet Explorer. A security vulnerability in the Active Template Library (ATL) in various releases of Microsoft Visual Studio, which is used by the Java Web Start ActiveX control, might allow the Java Web Start ActiveX control to be leveraged to run arbitrary code. This might occur as the result of a user of the Java Runtime Environment viewing a specially crafted web page that exploits this vulnerability. (CVE-2009-2493)
