SuSE 11 Security Update : IBM Java 1.6.0 (SAT Patch Number 1748)

High Nessus Plugin ID 43872

Synopsis

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

Description

IBM Java 6 was updated to Service Refresh 7.

The following security issues were fixed :

- 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 command execution vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment Deployment Toolkit might be used to run arbitrary code. This issue might occur as the result of a user of the Java Runtime Environment viewing a specially crafted web page that exploits this vulnerability. (CVE-2009-3865)

- 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)

- A security vulnerability in the Java Web Start Installer might be used to allow an untrusted Java Web Start application to run as a trusted application and run arbitrary code. This issue might occur as the result of a user of the Java Runtime Environment viewing a specially crafted web page that exploits this vulnerability. (CVE-2009-3866)

- 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)

- A vulnerability with verifying HMAC-based XML digital signatures in the XML Digital Signature implementation included with the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) might allow authentication to be bypassed. Applications that validate HMAC-based XML digital signatures might be vulnerable to this type of attack. (CVE-2009-0217)

Note: This vulnerability cannot be exploited by an untrusted applet or Java Web Start application.

Solution

Apply SAT patch number 1748.
