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

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

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
These Linux Distribution Packages provide the OpenJDK 6 Java Runtime Environment and the OpenJDK 6 Software Development Kit. A flaw was found in the Java RMI (Remote Method Invocation) Windows Registry implementation. A remote RMI client could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the RMI server running the Windows Registry. (CVE-2011-3556) A flaw was found in the Java RMI Windows Registry implementation. A remote RMI client could use this flaw to execute code on the RMI server with unrestricted privileges. (CVE-2011-3557) A flaw was found in the IIOP (Internet Inter-Orb Protocol) deserialization code. An untrusted Java application or applet running in a sandbox could use this flaw to bypass sandbox restrictions by deserializing specially-crafted input. (CVE-2011-3521) It was found that the Java ScriptingEngine did not properly restrict the privileges of sandboxed applications. An untrusted Java application or applet running in a sandbox could use this flaw to bypass sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2011-3544) A flaw was found in the AWTKeyStroke implementation. An untrusted Java application or applet running in a sandbox could use this flaw to bypass sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2011-3548) An integer overflow flaw, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in the Java2D code used to perform transformations of graphic shapes and images. An untrusted Java application or applet running in a sandbox could use this flaw to bypass sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2011-3551) An insufficient error checking flaw was found in the unpacker for JAR files in pack200 format. A specially-crafted JAR file could use this flaw to crash the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with JVM privileges. (CVE-2011-3554) It was found that HttpsURLConnection did not perform SecurityManager checks in the setSSLSocketFactory method. An untrusted Java application or applet running in a sandbox could use this flaw to bypass connection restrictions defined in the policy. (CVE-2011-3560) A flaw was found in the way the SSL 3 and TLS 1.0 protocols used block ciphers in cipher-block chaining (CBC) mode. An attacker able to perform a chosen plain text attack against a connection mixing trusted and untrusted data could use this flaw to recover portions of the trusted data sent over the connection. (CVE-2011-3389) Note: This update mitigates the CVE-2011-3389 issue by splitting the first application data record byte to a separate SSL/TLS protocol record. This mitigation may cause compatibility issues with some SSL/TLS implementations and can be ... Description truncated, please see the referenced URL(s) for more information.

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".
