CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'java' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
java on CentOS 5

Technical Details:
These Linux Distribution Packages provide the OpenJDK 6 Java Runtime Environment and the OpenJDK 6 Software Development Kit. The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) contains the software and tools that users need to run applications written using the Java programming language. A flaw was found in the way the TLS/SSL (Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer) protocols handle session renegotiation. A man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to prefix arbitrary plain text to a client's session (for example, an HTTPS connection to a website). This could force the server to process an attacker's request as if authenticated using the victim's credentials. (CVE-2009-3555) This update disables renegotiation in the Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) component. Unsafe renegotiation can be re-enabled using the sun.security.ssl.allowUnsafeRenegotiation property. Refer to the linked Knowledgebase article for details. A number of flaws have been fixed in the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and in various Java class implementations. These flaws could allow an unsigned applet or application to bypass intended access restrictions. (CVE-2010-0082, CVE-2010-0084, CVE-2010-0085, CVE-2010-0088, CVE-2010-0094) An untrusted applet could access clipboard information if a drag operation was performed over that applet's canvas. This could lead to an information leak. (CVE-2010-0091) The rawIndex operation incorrectly handled large values, causing the corruption of internal memory structures, resulting in an untrusted applet or application crashing. (CVE-2010-0092) The System.arraycopy operation incorrectly handled large index values, potentially causing array corruption in an untrusted applet or application. (CVE-2010-0093) Subclasses of InetAddress may incorrectly interpret network addresses, allowing an untrusted applet or application to bypass network access restrictions. (CVE-2010-0095) In certain cases, type assignments could result in 'non-exact' interface types. This could be used to bypass type-safety restrictions. (CVE-2010-0845) A buffer overflow flaw in LittleCMS (embedded in OpenJDK) could cause an untrusted applet or application using color profiles from untrusted sources to crash. (CVE-2010-0838) An input validation flaw was found in the JRE unpack200 functionality. An untrusted applet or application could use this flaw to elevate its privileges. (CVE-2010-0837) Deferred ...

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
