Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 10.10 / 11.04 / 11.10 : openjdk-6, openjdk-6b18 regression (USN-1263-2) (BEAST)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 57685

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

USN-1263-1 fixed vulnerabilities in OpenJDK 6. The upstream patch for the chosen plaintext attack on the block-wise AES encryption algorithm (CVE-2011-3389) introduced a regression that caused TLS/SSL connections to fail when using certain algorithms. This update fixes the problem.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Deepak Bhole discovered a flaw in the Same Origin Policy (SOP) implementation in the IcedTea web browser plugin. This could allow a remote attacker to open connections to certain hosts that should not be permitted. (CVE-2011-3377)

Juliano Rizzo and Thai Duong discovered that the block-wise AES encryption algorithm block-wise as used in TLS/SSL was vulnerable to a chosen-plaintext attack. This could allow a remote attacker to view confidential data. (CVE-2011-3389)

It was discovered that a type confusion flaw existed in the in the Internet Inter-Orb Protocol (IIOP) deserialization code. A remote attacker could use this to cause an untrusted application or applet to execute arbitrary code by deserializing malicious input. (CVE-2011-3521)

It was discovered that the Java scripting engine did not perform SecurityManager checks. This could allow a remote attacker to cause an untrusted application or applet to execute arbitrary code with the full privileges of the JVM.
(CVE-2011-3544)

It was discovered that the InputStream class used a global buffer to store input bytes skipped. An attacker could possibly use this to gain access to sensitive information.
(CVE-2011-3547)

It was discovered that a vulnerability existed in the AWTKeyStroke class. A remote attacker could cause an untrusted application or applet to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2011-3548)

It was discovered that an integer overflow vulnerability existed in the TransformHelper class in the Java2D implementation. A remote attacker could use this cause a denial of service via an application or applet crash or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-3551)

It was discovered that the default number of available UDP sockets for applications running under SecurityManager restrictions was set too high. A remote attacker could use this with a malicious application or applet exhaust the number of available UDP sockets to cause a denial of service for other applets or applications running within the same JVM. (CVE-2011-3552)

It was discovered that Java API for XML Web Services (JAX-WS) could incorrectly expose a stack trace. A remote attacker could potentially use this to gain access to sensitive information. (CVE-2011-3553)

It was discovered that the unpacker for pack200 JAR files did not sufficiently check for errors. An attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code through a specially crafted pack200 JAR file.
(CVE-2011-3554)

It was discovered that the RMI registration implementation did not properly restrict privileges of remotely executed code. A remote attacker could use this to execute code with elevated privileges. (CVE-2011-3556, CVE-2011-3557)

It was discovered that the HotSpot VM could be made to crash, allowing an attacker to cause a denial of service or possibly leak sensitive information. (CVE-2011-3558)

It was discovered that the HttpsURLConnection class did not properly perform SecurityManager checks in certain situations. This could allow a remote attacker to bypass restrictions on HTTPS connections. (CVE-2011-3560).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
