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 flaws were discovered in the font layout engine in the 2D component. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use these flaws to trigger Java Virtual Machine memory corruption. (CVE-2013-1569, CVE-2013-2383, CVE-2013-2384) Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the Beans, Libraries, JAXP, and RMI components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-1558, CVE-2013-2422, CVE-2013-2436, CVE-2013-1518, CVE-2013-1557) The previous default value of the java.rmi.server.useCodebaseOnly property permitted the RMI implementation to automatically load classes from remotely specified locations. An attacker able to connect to an application using RMI could use this flaw to make the application execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2013-1537) Note: The fix for CVE-2013-1537 changes the default value of the property to true, restricting class loading to the local CLASSPATH and locations specified in the java.rmi.server.codebase property. Refer to Red Hat Bugzilla bug 952387 for additional details. The 2D component did not properly process certain images. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use this flaw to trigger Java Virtual Machine memory corruption. (CVE-2013-2420) It was discovered that the Hotspot component did not properly handle certain intrinsic frames, and did not correctly perform access checks and MethodHandle lookups. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-2431, CVE-2013-2421, CVE-2013-2423) It was discovered that JPEGImageReader and JPEGImageWriter in the ImageIO component did not protect against modification of their state while performing certain native code operations. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use these flaws to trigger Java Virtual Machine memory corruption. (CVE-2013-2429, CVE-2013-2430) The JDBC driver manager could incorrectly call the toString() method in JDBC drivers, and the ConcurrentHashMap class could incorrectly call the defaultReadObject() method. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-1488, CVE-2013-2426) The sun.awt.datatransfer.ClassLoaderObjectInputStream class may incorrectly invoke the system class loader. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly u ...

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".
