CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

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 6

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
These Linux Distribution Packages provide the OpenJDK 7 Java Runtime Environment and the OpenJDK 7 Software Development Kit. Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the Beans, Libraries, Swing, and JMX components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2012-5086, CVE-2012-5087, CVE-2012-5088, CVE-2012-5084, CVE-2012-5089) The default Java security properties configuration did not restrict access to certain com.sun.org.glassfish Linux Distribution Packages. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. This update lists those Linux Distribution Packages as restricted. (CVE-2012-5076, CVE-2012-5074) Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the Scripting, JMX, Concurrency, Libraries, and Security components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2012-5068, CVE-2012-5071, CVE-2012-5069, CVE-2012-5073, CVE-2012-5072) It was discovered that java.util.ServiceLoader could create an instance of an incompatible class while performing provider lookup. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2012-5079) It was discovered that the Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) SSL/TLS implementation did not properly handle handshake records containing an overly large data length value. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to cause an SSL/TLS server to terminate with an exception. (CVE-2012-5081) It was discovered that the JMX component in OpenJDK could perform certain actions in an insecure manner. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use these flaws to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2012-5070, CVE-2012-5075) A bug in the Java HotSpot Virtual Machine optimization code could cause it to not perform array initialization in certain cases. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to disclose portions of the virtual machine's memory. (CVE-2012-4416) It was discovered that the SecureRandom class did not properly protect against the creation of multiple seeders. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use this flaw to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2012-5077) It was discovered that the java.io.FilePermission class exposed the hash code of the canonicalized path name. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use this flaw to determine certain system paths, suc ... 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".
