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. Multiple flaws were discovered in the ImagingLib and the image attribute, channel, layout and raster processing in the 2D component. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use these flaws to trigger Java Virtual Machine memory corruption. (CVE-2013-2470, CVE-2013-2471, CVE-2013-2472, CVE-2013-2473, CVE-2013-2463, CVE-2013-2465, CVE-2013-2469) Integer overflow flaws were found in the way AWT processed certain input. An attacker could use these flaws to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running an untrusted Java applet or application. (CVE-2013-2459) Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the Sound and JMX components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-2448, CVE-2013-2457, CVE-2013-2453) Multiple flaws in the Serialization, Networking, Libraries and CORBA components can be exploited by an untrusted Java application or applet to gain access to potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2013-2456, CVE-2013-2447, CVE-2013-2455, CVE-2013-2452, CVE-2013-2443, CVE-2013-2446) It was discovered that the Hotspot component did not properly handle out-of-memory errors. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use these flaws to terminate the Java Virtual Machine. (CVE-2013-2445) It was discovered that the AWT component did not properly manage certain resources and that the ObjectStreamClass of the Serialization component did not properly handle circular references. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use these flaws to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2013-2444, CVE-2013-2450) It was discovered that the Libraries component contained certain errors related to XML security and the class loader. A remote attacker could possibly exploit these flaws to bypass intended security mechanisms or disclose potentially sensitive information and cause a denial of service. (CVE-2013-2407, CVE-2013-2461) It was discovered that JConsole did not properly inform the user when establishing an SSL connection failed. An attacker could exploit this flaw to gain access to potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2013-2412) It was found that documentation generated by Javadoc was vulnerable to a frame injection attack. If such documentation was accessible over a network, and a remote attacker could trick a user into visiting a specially-crafted URL, it would ...

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".
