SuSE 10 Security Update : IBM Java (ZYPP Patch Number 7440)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 57203


The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


IBM Java 1.4.2 SR13 was updated to FP8 to fix various bugs and security issues.

The following security issues were fixed :

- The kg_accept_krb5 function in krb5/accept_sec_context.c in the GSS-API library in MIT Kerberos 5 (aka krb5) through 1.7.1 and 1.8 before 1.8.2, as used in kadmind and other applications, does not properly check for invalid GSS-API tokens, which allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (NULL pointer dereference and daemon crash) via an AP-REQ message in which the authenticator's checksum field is missing. (CVE-2010-1321)

- Unspecified vulnerability in the Networking component in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 21, 5.0 Update 25, 1.4.2_27, and 1.3.1_28 allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors. NOTE: the previous information was obtained from the October 2010 CPU.
Oracle has not commented on claims from a reliable downstream vendor that HttpURLConnection does not properly check for the allowHttpTrace permission, which allows untrusted code to perform HTTP TRACE requests.

- The Java Runtime Environment hangs forever when converting '2.2250738585072012e-308' to a binary floating-point number. (CVE-2010-4476)
