Synopsis

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

Description

Several vulnerabilities were discovered in the OpenJDK JRE related to information disclosure, data integrity and availability. An attacker could exploit these to cause a denial of service or expose sensitive data over the network. (CVE-2014-0429, CVE-2014-0446, CVE-2014-0451, CVE-2014-0452, CVE-2014-0456, CVE-2014-0457, CVE-2014-0458, CVE-2014-0461, CVE-2014-0462, CVE-2014-2397, CVE-2014-2405, CVE-2014-2412, CVE-2014-2414, CVE-2014-2421, CVE-2014-2423, CVE-2014-2427)

Two vulnerabilities were discovered in the OpenJDK JRE related to information disclosure and data integrity. An attacker could exploit these to expose sensitive data over the network. (CVE-2014-0453, CVE-2014-0460)

A vulnerability was discovered in the OpenJDK JRE related to availability. An attacker could exploit this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2014-0459)

Jakub Wilk discovered that the OpenJDK JRE incorrectly handled temporary files. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to overwrite arbitrary files. In the default installation of Ubuntu, this should be prevented by the Yama link restrictions. (CVE-2014-1876)

A vulnerability was discovered in the OpenJDK JRE related to data integrity. (CVE-2014-2398)

A vulnerability was discovered in the OpenJDK JRE related to information disclosure. An attacker could exploit this to expose sensitive data over the network. (CVE-2014-2403).

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.
