CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

Check the version of java

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
The java-1.6.0-openjdk Linux Distribution Packages provide the OpenJDK 6 Java Runtime Environment and the OpenJDK 6 Java Software Development Kit. A flaw was found in the way the Hotspot component in OpenJDK verified bytecode from the class files. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use this flaw to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2014-6601) Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the JAX-WS, and RMI components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2015-0412, CVE-2015-0408) A flaw was found in the way the Hotspot garbage collector handled phantom references. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to corrupt the Java Virtual Machine memory and, possibly, execute arbitrary code, bypassing Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2015-0395) A flaw was found in the way the DER (Distinguished Encoding Rules) decoder in the Security component in OpenJDK handled negative length values. A specially crafted, DER-encoded input could cause a Java application to enter an infinite loop when decoded. (CVE-2015-0410) A flaw was found in the way the SSL 3.0 protocol handled padding bytes when decrypting messages that were encrypted using block ciphers in cipher block chaining (CBC) mode. This flaw could possibly allow a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacker to decrypt portions of the cipher text using a padding oracle attack. (CVE-2014-3566) Note: This update disables SSL 3.0 by default to address this issue. The jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms security property can be used to re-enable SSL 3.0 support if needed. For additional information, refer to the Red Hat Bugzilla bug linked to in the References section. It was discovered that the SSL/TLS implementation in the JSSE component in OpenJDK failed to properly check whether the ChangeCipherSpec was received during the SSL/TLS connection handshake. An MITM attacker could possibly use this flaw to force a connection to be established without encryption being enabled. (CVE-2014-6593) An information leak flaw was found in the Swing component in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2015-0407) A NULL pointer dereference flaw was found in the MulticastSocket implementation in the Libraries component of OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use this flaw to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2014-6587) Multiple boundary check flaws were found in the font parsing code in the 2D component in OpenJDK. A specially crafted font file could allo ...

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".
