CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

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. defaultReadObject of the Serialization API could be tricked into setting a volatile field multiple times, which could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the applet or application. (CVE-2010-3569) Race condition in the way objects were deserialized could allow an untrusted applet or application to misuse the privileges of the user running the applet or application. (CVE-2010-3568) Miscalculation in the OpenType font rendering implementation caused out-of-bounds memory access, which could allow remote attackers to execute code with the privileges of the user running the java process. (CVE-2010-3567) JPEGImageWriter.writeImage in the imageio API improperly checked certain image metadata, which could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the user running the applet or application. (CVE-2010-3565) Double free in IndexColorModel could cause an untrusted applet or application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the applet or application. (CVE-2010-3562) The privileged accept method of the ServerSocket class in the Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) implementation in OpenJDK allowed it to receive connections from any host, instead of just the host of the current connection. An attacker could use this flaw to bypass restrictions defined by network permissions. (CVE-2010-3561) Flaws in the Swing library could allow an untrusted application to modify the behavior and state of certain JDK classes. (CVE-2010-3557) Flaws in the CORBA implementation could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code by misusing permissions granted to certain system objects. (CVE-2010-3554) UIDefault.ProxyLazyValue had unsafe reflection usage, allowing untrusted callers to create objects via ProxyLazyValue values. (CVE-2010-3553) HttpURLConnection improperly handled the 'chunked' transfer encoding method, which could allow remote attackers to conduct HTTP response splitting attacks. (CVE-2010-3549) HttpURLConnection improperly checked whether the calling code was granted the 'allowHttpTrace' permission, allowing untrusted code to create HTTP TRACE requests. (CVE-2010-3574) HttpURLConnection did not validate request headers set by applets, which could allow remote attackers to trigger actions otherwise restricted to HTTP clients. (CVE-2010-3541, C ...

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".
