Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 1505-1 - It was discovered that multiple flaws existed in the CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) implementation in OpenJDK. An attacker could create a Java application or applet that used these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions or modify immutable object data. It was discovered that multiple flaws existed in the OpenJDK font manager's layout lookup implementation. A attacker could specially craft a font file that could cause a denial of service through crashing the JVM (Java Virtual Machine) or possibly execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-1505-1

icedtea-web, openjdk-6 vulnerabilities
============================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 11.10
- Ubuntu 11.04
- Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in OpenJDK 6.

Software Description:
- openjdk-6: Open Source Java implementation
- icedtea-web: A web browser plugin to execute Java applets

Details:

It was discovered that multiple flaws existed in the CORBA (Common
Object Request Broker Architecture) implementation in OpenJDK. An
attacker could create a Java application or applet that used these
flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions or modify immutable object
data. (CVE-2012-1711, CVE-2012-1719)

It was discovered that multiple flaws existed in the OpenJDK font
manager's layout lookup implementation. A attacker could specially
craft a font file that could cause a denial of service through
crashing the JVM (Java Virtual Machine) or possibly execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2012-1713)

It was discovered that the SynthLookAndFeel class from Swing in
OpenJDK did not properly prevent access to certain UI elements
=66rom outside the current application context. An attacker could
create a Java application or applet that used this flaw to cause a
denial of service through crashing the JVM or bypass Java sandbox
restrictions. (CVE-2012-1716)

It was discovered that OpenJDK runtime library classes could create
temporary files with insecure permissions. A local attacker could
use this to gain access to sensitive information. (CVE-2012-1717)

It was discovered that OpenJDK did not handle CRLs (Certificate
Revocation Lists) properly. A remote attacker could use this to gain
access to sensitive information. (CVE-2012-1718)

It was discovered that the OpenJDK HotSpot Virtual Machine did not
properly verify the bytecode of the class to be executed. A remote
attacker could create a Java application or applet that used this
to cause a denial of service through crashing the JVM or bypass Java
sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2012-1723, CVE-2012-1725)

It was discovered that the OpenJDK XML (Extensible Markup Language)
parser did not properly handle some XML documents. An attacker could
create an XML document that caused a denial of service in a Java
application or applet parsing the document. (CVE-2012-1724)

As part of this update, the IcedTea web browser applet plugin was
updated for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Ubuntu 11.04, and Ubuntu 11.10.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
openjdk-6-jre 6b24-1.11.3-1ubuntu0.12.04.1

Ubuntu 11.10:
icedtea-6-plugin 1.2-2ubuntu0.11.10.1
openjdk-6-jre 6b24-1.11.3-1ubuntu0.11.10.1

Ubuntu 11.04:
icedtea-6-plugin 1.2-2ubuntu0.11.04.1
openjdk-6-jre 6b24-1.11.3-1ubuntu0.11.04.1

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
icedtea-6-plugin 1.2-2ubuntu0.10.04.1
openjdk-6-jre 6b24-1.11.3-1ubuntu0.10.04.1

This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional
bug fixes. After a standard system update you need to restart any
Java applications or applets to make all the necessary changes.
