Synopsis

The remote Unix host has an application that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) J2SE 1.4.2 installed on the remote host is affected by multiple security issues :

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the font processing module of the JRE could allow an untrusted applet/application to elevate its privileges to read, write and execute local applications with the privileges of the user running an untrusted applet (238666).

- A vulnerability in the JRE could allow an untrusted applet/application to elevate its privileges to read, write and execute local applications with the privileges of the user running an untrusted applet (238967).

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in Java Web Start could allow an untrusted applet to elevate its privileges to read, write and execute local applications available to users running an untrusted application (238905).

- A vulnerability in Java Web Start, could allow an untrusted application to create or delete arbitrary files subject to the privileges of the user running the application (238905).

- A vulnerability in Java Web Start, may disclose the location of Java Web Start cache (238905).

- A vulnerability in the JRE may allow an untrusted applet to establish connections to services running on the local host and potentially exploit vulnerabilities existing in the underlying JRE (238968).

- It should be noted that J2SE 1.4.2 is in its EOL period, and the transition is set to complete on Oct 30th 2008.

Solution

Update to Sun Java J2SE 1.4.2_18 or later and remove, if necessary, any affected versions.
