Sun Java SE Multiple Vulnerabilities - Nov09 (Windows)

Published: 2009-11-23 06:01:19
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

Successful exploitation allows remote attacker to execute arbitrary code, gain escalated privileges, bypass security restrictions and cause denial of service attacks inside the context of the affected system.

Affected Versions:
Sun Java SE 6 prior to 6 Update 17 Sun Java SE 5 prior to 5 Update 22 on Windows.

Technical Details:
Multiple flaws occur due to: - Directory traversal vulnerability in 'ICC_Profile.getInstance' method. - Unspecified error in TrueType font parsing functionality. - When a non-English version of Windows is used, the Java Update functionality does not retrieve available new JRE versions. - Failure to clone arrays that are returned by the 'getConfigurations()' function in X11 and Win32GraphicsDevice. - The Abstract Window Toolkit (AWT) does not properly restrict the objects that may be sent to loggers. - Information leak occurs as the application does not prevent the existence of children of a resurrected ClassLoader. - Multiple unspecified errors in the Swing implementation. - The 'TimeZone.getTimeZone' method allows users to probe for the existence of local files via vectors related to handling of zoneinfo. - Error during parsing of BMP files containing UNC ICC links.

Upgrade to JRE version 6 Update 17 or later. OR Upgrade to JRE version 5 Update 22.

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".
