RHEL 4 / 5 : java-1.5.0-ibm (RHSA-2010:0130)

High Nessus Plugin ID 44974

Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated java-1.5.0-ibm packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Extras and 5 Supplementary.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The IBM 1.5.0 Java release includes the IBM Java 2 Runtime Environment and the IBM Java 2 Software Development Kit.

A flaw was found in the way the TLS/SSL (Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer) protocols handle session renegotiation.
A man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to prefix arbitrary plain text to a client's session (for example, an HTTPS connection to a website). This could force the server to process an attacker's request as if authenticated using the victim's credentials.
(CVE-2009-3555)

This update disables renegotiation in the Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) component. Unsafe renegotiation can be re-enabled using the com.ibm.jsse2.renegotiate property. Refer to the following Knowledgebase article for details:
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-20491

All users of java-1.5.0-ibm are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, containing the IBM 1.5.0 SR11-FP1 Java release. All running instances of IBM Java must be restarted for this update to take effect.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
