Oracle Java SE Multiple Vulnerabilities (January 2017 CPU) (SWEET32)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 96628
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java SE or Java for Business installed on the remote host is prior to 8 Update 121, 7 Update 131, or 6 Update 141. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A vulnerability exists in the Libraries subcomponent, known as SWEET32, in the 3DES and Blowfish algorithms due to the use of weak 64-bit block ciphers by default.
A man-in-the-middle attacker who has sufficient resources can exploit this vulnerability, via a 'birthday' attack, to detect a collision that leaks the XOR between the fixed secret and a known plaintext, allowing the disclosure of the secret text, such as secure HTTPS cookies, and possibly resulting in the hijacking of an authenticated session. (CVE-2016-2183)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Libraries subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact integrity. (CVE-2016-5546)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Libraries subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-5547)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the Libraries subcomponent that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2016-5548, CVE-2016-5549)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Networking subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact integrity. (CVE-2016-5552)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Mission Control subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact integrity. (CVE-2016-8328)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the Networking subcomponent that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2017-3231, CVE-2017-3261)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the RMI subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-3241)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the JAAS subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact integrity. (CVE-2017-3252)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the 2D subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-3253)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Deployment subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2017-3259)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the AWT subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-3260)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Java Mission Control subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2017-3262)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Libraries subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-3272)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Hotspot subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-3289)

Note that CVE-2017-3241 can only be exploited by supplying data to APIs in the specified component without using untrusted Java Web Start applications or untrusted Java applets, such as through a web service.
Note that CVE-2016-2183, CVE-2016-5546, CVE-2016-5547, CVE-2016-5552, CVE-2017-3252, and CVE-2017-3253 can be exploited through sandboxed Java Web Start applications and sandboxed Java applets. They can also be exploited by supplying data to APIs in the specified component without using sandboxed Java Web Start applications or sandboxed Java applets, such as through a web service.

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle JDK / JRE 8 Update 121 / 7 Update 131 / 6 Update 141 or later. If necessary, remove any affected versions.

Note that an Extended Support contract with Oracle is needed to obtain JDK / JRE 6 Update 95 or later.
