CentOS Update for java CESA-2013:0247 centos6

Published: 2013-02-11 04:50:58
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 6

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 AWT, CORBA, JMX, Libraries, and Beans components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-0442, CVE-2013-0445, CVE-2013-0441, CVE-2013-1475, CVE-2013-1476, CVE-2013-0429, CVE-2013-0450, CVE-2013-0425, CVE-2013-0426, CVE-2013-0428, CVE-2013-0444) Multiple flaws were found in the way image parsers in the 2D and AWT components handled image raster parameters. A specially-crafted image could cause Java Virtual Machine memory corruption and, possibly, lead to arbitrary code execution with the virtual machine privileges. (CVE-2013-1478, CVE-2013-1480) A flaw was found in the AWT component's clipboard handling code. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to access clipboard data, bypassing Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-0432) The default Java security properties configuration did not restrict access to certain com.sun.xml.internal Linux Distribution Packages. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to access information, bypassing certain Java sandbox restrictions. This update lists the whole Linux Distribution Package as restricted. (CVE-2013-0435) Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the JMX, Libraries, Networking, and JAXP components. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-0431, CVE-2013-0427, CVE-2013-0433, CVE-2013-0434) It was discovered that the RMI component's CGIHandler class used user inputs in error messages without any sanitization. An attacker could use this flaw to perform a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. (CVE-2013-0424) It was discovered that the SSL/TLS implementation in the JSSE component did not properly enforce handshake message ordering, allowing an unlimited number of handshake restarts. A remote attacker could use this flaw to make an SSL/TLS server using JSSE consume an excessive amount of CPU by continuously restarting the handshake. (CVE-2013-0440) It was discovered that the JSSE component did not properly validate Diffie-Hellman public keys. An SSL/TLS client could possibly use this flaw to perform a small subgroup attack. (CVE-2013-0443) This erratum also upgrades the OpenJDK Linux Distribution Package to IcedTea7 2.3.5. Refer to the NEWS file, linked to in the References, for further information. All users of java-1.7.0-openjdk are advised to upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which resolve these issues. All running instances of OpenJDK Java must be restarted for the update to take effect.

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".
