New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 8.6

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.
