Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2013:266

Package : java-1.6.0-openjdk
Date : November 19, 2013
Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0

Problem Description:

Updated java-1.6.0-openjdk packages fix security vulnerabilities:

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,

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 easier to perform cross-site scripting attacks
(CVE-2013-5804, CVE-2013-5797).

Various OpenJDK classes that represent cryptographic keys could
leak private key information by including sensitive data in strings
returned by toString() methods. These flaws could possibly lead to
an unexpected exposure of sensitive key data (CVE-2013-5780).

The Java Heap Analysis Tool (jhat) failed to properly escape all
data added into the HTML pages it generated. Crafted content in the
memory of a Java program analyzed using jhat could possibly be used
to conduct cross-site scripting attacks (CVE-2013-5772).

The Kerberos implementation in OpenJDK did not properly parse KDC
responses. A malformed packet could cause a Java application using
JGSS to exit (CVE-2013-5803).

This updates IcedTea6 to version 1.11.14, which fixes these issues,
as well as several others.
