Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : java-1.6.0-openjdk (MDVSA-2011:054)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 53001

Synopsis

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities has been identified and fixed in java-1.6.0-openjdk :

The JNLP SecurityManager in IcedTea (IcedTea.so) 1.7 before 1.7.7, 1.8 before 1.8.4, and 1.9 before 1.9.4 for Java OpenJDK returns from the checkPermission method instead of throwing an exception in certain circumstances, which might allow context-dependent attackers to bypass the intended security policy by creating instances of ClassLoader (CVE-2010-4351).

Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 23 and earlier, 5.0 Update 27 and earlier, and 1.4.2_29 earlier allows remote untrusted Java Web Start applications and untrusted Java applets to affect integrity via unknown vectors related to Networking. NOTE: the previous information was obtained from the February 2011 CPU. Oracle has not commented on claims from a downstream vendor that this issue involves DNS cache poisoning by untrusted applets. (CVE-2010-4448)

Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 23 and earlier for Solaris and Linux; 5.0 Update 27 and earlier for Solaris and Linux;
and 1.4.2_29 and earlier for Solaris and Linux allows local standalone applications to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors related to Launcher. NOTE: the previous information was obtained from the February 2011 CPU. Oracle has not commented on claims from a downstream vendor that this issue is an untrusted search path vulnerability involving an empty LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable (CVE-2010-4450).

Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 23 and earlier, 5.0 Update 27 and earlier, and 1.4.2_29 and earlier allows remote untrusted Java Web Start applications and untrusted Java applets to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors related to Swing. NOTE: the previous information was obtained from the February 2011 CPU. Oracle has not commented on claims from a downstream vendor that this issue is related to the lack of framework support by AWT event dispatch, and/or clipboard access in Applets.
(CVE-2010-4465)

Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 23 and earlier, 5.0 Update 27 and earlier, and 1.4.2_29 and earlier allows remote untrusted Java Web Start applications and untrusted Java applets to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors related to HotSpot. NOTE: the previous information was obtained from the February 2011 CPU. Oracle has not commented on claims from a downstream vendor that this issue is heap corruption related to the Verifier and backward jsrs. (CVE-2010-4469)

Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 23, and, and earlier allows remote attackers to affect availability via unknown vectors related to JAXP and unspecified APIs. NOTE: the previous information was obtained from the February 2011 CPU. Oracle has not commented on claims from a downstream vendor that this issue is related to Features set on SchemaFactory not inherited by Validator. (CVE-2010-4470)

Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 23 and earlier, and 5.0 Update 27 and earlier allows remote untrusted Java Web Start applications and untrusted Java applets to affect confidentiality via unknown vectors related to 2D. NOTE: the previous information was obtained from the February 2011 CPU. Oracle has not commented on claims from a downstream vendor that this issue is related to the exposure of system properties via vectors related to Font.createFont and exception text (CVE-2010-4471).

Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 23 and earlier allows remote attackers to affect availability, related to XML Digital Signature and unspecified APIs. NOTE: the previous information was obtained from the February 2011 CPU. Oracle has not commented on claims from a downstream vendor that this issue involves the replacement of the XML DSig Transform or C14N algorithm implementations. (CVE-2010-4472)

The Double.parseDouble method in Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 23 and earlier, 5.0 Update 27 and earlier, and 1.4.2_29 and earlier, as used in OpenJDK, Apache, JBossweb, and other products, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service via a crafted string that triggers an infinite loop of estimations during conversion to a double-precision binary floating-point number, as demonstrated using 2.2250738585072012e-308 (CVE-2010-4476).

IcedTea 1.7 before 1.7.8, 1.8 before 1.8.5, and 1.9 before 1.9.5 does not properly verify signatures for JAR files that (1) are partially signed or (2) signed by multiple entities, which allows remote attackers to trick users into executing code that appears to come from a trusted source (CVE-2011-0025).

The JNLPClassLoader class in IcedTea-Web before 1.0.1, as used in OpenJDK Runtime Environment 1.6.0, allows remote attackers to gain privileges via unknown vectors related to multiple signers and the assignment of an inappropriate security descriptor. (CVE-2011-0706)

Additionally the java-1.5.0-gcj packages were not rebuilt with the shipped version on GCC for 2009.0 and Enterprise Server 5 which caused problems while building the java-1.6.0-openjdk updates, therefore rebuilt java-1.5.0-gcj packages are being provided with this advisory as well.

Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Please visit this link to learn more:

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
