Oracle JRockit R28.3.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities (April 2015 CPU) (FREAK)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 82830


The remote Windows host contains a programming platform that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Windows host has a version of Oracle JRockit installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A security feature bypass vulnerability, known as FREAK (Factoring attack on RSA-EXPORT Keys), exists due to the support of weak EXPORT_RSA cipher suites with keys less than or equal to 512 bits. A man-in-the-middle attacker may be able to downgrade the SSL/TLS connection to use EXPORT_RSA cipher suites which can be factored in a short amount of time, allowing the attacker to intercept and decrypt the traffic. (CVE-2015-0204)

- A flaw exists in the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) subcomponent due to an implementation error in the RSA signature. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2015-0478)

- A flaw exists in the JSSE subcomponent due to improper parsing of X.509 certificate options. A remote attacker can exploit this flaw to trigger an application termination, resulting in a denial of service.


Upgrade to Oracle JRockit version R28.3.6 or later as referenced in the April 2015 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
