CentOS Update for java CESA-2013:1505 centos5
The remote host is missing an update for the 'java' package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
The java-1.6.0-openjdk packages provide the OpenJDK 6 Java Runtime Environment and the OpenJDK 6 Java Software Development Kit. Multiple input checking flaws were found in the 2D component native image parsing code. A specially crafted image file could trigger a Java Virtual Machine memory corruption and, possibly, lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running the Java Virtual Machine. (CVE-2013-5782) The class loader did not properly check the package access for non-public proxy classes. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the Java Virtual Machine. (CVE-2013-5830) Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the 2D, CORBA, JNDI, and Libraries components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-5829, CVE-2013-5814, CVE-2013-5817, CVE-2013-5842, CVE-2013-5850) Multiple input checking flaws were discovered in the JPEG image reading and writing code in the 2D component. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to corrupt the Java Virtual Machine memory and bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-5809) The FEATURE_SECURE_PROCESSING setting was not properly honored by the javax.xml.transform package transformers. A remote attacker could use this flaw to supply a crafted XML that would be processed without the intended security restrictions. (CVE-2013-5802) Multiple errors were discovered in the way the JAXP and Security components processes XML inputs. A remote attacker could create a crafted XML that would cause a Java application to use an excessive amount of CPU and memory when processed. (CVE-2013-5825, CVE-2013-4002, CVE-2013-5823) Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the Libraries, Swing, JAX-WS, JGSS, AWT, Beans, and Scripting components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-3829, CVE-2013-5840, CVE-2013-5774, CVE-2013-5783, CVE-2013-5820, CVE-2013-5849, CVE-2013-5790, CVE-2013-5784) It was discovered that the 2D component image library did not properly check bounds when performing image conversions. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to disclose portions of the Java Virtual Machine memory. (CVE-2013-5778) Multiple input sanitization flaws were discovered in javadoc. When javadoc documentation was generated from an untrusted Java source code and hosted on a domain not controlled by the code author, these issues could make it easie ...
