DescriptionCVE-2009-0217 xmlsec1, mono, xml-security-c, xml-security-1.3.0-1jpp.ep1.*: XMLDsig HMAC-based signatures spoofing and authentication bypass
CVE-2009-2670 OpenJDK Untrusted applet System properties access (6738524)
CVE-2009-2671 CVE-2009-2672 OpenJDK Proxy mechanism information leaks (6801071)
CVE-2009-2673 OpenJDK proxy mechanism allows non-authorized socket connections (6801497)
CVE-2009-2674 Java Web Start Buffer JPEG processing integer overflow (6823373)
CVE-2009-2675 Java Web Start Buffer unpack200 processing integer overflow (6830335)
CVE-2009-2625 OpenJDK XML parsing Denial-Of-Service (6845701)
CVE-2009-2475 OpenJDK information leaks in mutable variables (6588003,6656586,6656610,6656625,6657133,6657619,6657625,6657695,66600 49,6660539,6813167)
CVE-2009-2476 OpenJDK OpenType checks can be bypassed (6736293)
CVE-2009-2689 OpenJDK JDK13Services grants unnecessary privileges (6777448)
CVE-2009-2690 OpenJDK private variable information disclosure (6777487)
A flaw was found in the way the XML Digital Signature implementation in the JRE handled HMAC-based XML signatures. An attacker could use this flaw to create a crafted signature that could allow them to bypass authentication, or trick a user, applet, or application into accepting untrusted content. (CVE-2009-0217)
Several potential information leaks were found in various mutable static variables. These could be exploited in application scenarios that execute untrusted scripting code. (CVE-2009-2475)
It was discovered that OpenType checks can be bypassed. This could allow a rogue application to bypass access restrictions by acquiring references to privileged objects through finalizer resurrection.
A denial of service flaw was found in the way the JRE processes XML. A remote attacker could use this flaw to supply crafted XML that would lead to a denial of service. (CVE-2009-2625)
A flaw was found in the JRE audio system. An untrusted applet or application could use this flaw to gain read access to restricted System properties. (CVE-2009-2670)
Two flaws were found in the JRE proxy implementation. An untrusted applet or application could use these flaws to discover the usernames of users running applets and applications, or obtain web browser cookies and use them for session hijacking attacks. (CVE-2009-2671, CVE-2009-2672)
An additional flaw was found in the proxy mechanism implementation.
This flaw allowed an untrusted applet or application to bypass access restrictions and communicate using non-authorized socket or URL connections to hosts other than the origin host. (CVE-2009-2673)
An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the JRE processes JPEG images. An untrusted application could use this flaw to extend its privileges, allowing it to read and write local files, as well as to execute local applications with the privileges of the user running the application. (CVE-2009-2674)
An integer overflow flaw was found in the JRE unpack200 functionality.
An untrusted applet or application could extend its privileges, allowing it to read and write local files, as well as to execute local applications with the privileges of the user running the applet or application. (CVE-2009-2675)
It was discovered that JDK13Services grants unnecessary privileges to certain object types. This could be misused by an untrusted applet or application to use otherwise restricted functionality. (CVE-2009-2689)
An information disclosure flaw was found in the way private Java variables were handled. An untrusted applet or application could use this flaw to obtain information from variables that would otherwise be private. (CVE-2009-2690)
Note: The flaws concerning applets in this advisory, CVE-2009-2475,
CVE-2009-2670, CVE-2009-2671, CVE-2009-2672, CVE-2009-2673,
CVE-2009-2675, CVE-2009-2689, and CVE-2009-2690, can only be triggered in java-1.6.0-openjdk by calling the 'appletviewer' application.
All running instances of OpenJDK Java must be restarted for the update to take effect.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
