Mandriva Linux Security Advisory 2015-212 - An off-by-one flaw, leading to a buffer overflow, was found in the font parsing code in the 2D component in OpenJDK. A specially crafted font file could possibly cause the Java Virtual Machine to execute arbitrary code, allowing an untrusted Java application or applet to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. A flaw was found in the way the Hotspot component in OpenJDK 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. A flaw was found in the way the JSSE component in OpenJDK parsed X.509 certificate options. A specially crafted certificate could cause JSSE to raise an exception, possibly causing an application using JSSE to exit unexpectedly. A flaw was discovered in the Beans component in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions. A directory traversal flaw was found in the way the jar tool extracted JAR archive files. A specially crafted JAR archive could cause jar to overwrite arbitrary files writable by the user running jar when the archive was extracted. It was found that the RSA implementation in the JCE component in OpenJDK did not follow recommended practices for implementing RSA signatures.

Package : java-1.7.0-openjdk
Date : April 27, 2015
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated java-1.7.0 packages fix security vulnerabilities:

An off-by-one flaw, leading to a buffer overflow, was found in the
font parsing code in the 2D component in OpenJDK. A specially crafted
font file could possibly cause the Java Virtual Machine to execute
arbitrary code, allowing an untrusted Java application or applet to
bypass Java sandbox restrictions (CVE-2015-0469).

A flaw was found in the way the Hotspot component in OpenJDK
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-2015-0460).

A flaw was found in the way the JSSE component in OpenJDK parsed X.509
certificate options. A specially crafted certificate could cause JSSE
to raise an exception, possibly causing an application using JSSE to
exit unexpectedly (CVE-2015-0488).

A flaw was discovered in the Beans component in OpenJDK. An untrusted
Java application or applet could use this flaw to bypass certain Java
sandbox restrictions (CVE-2015-0477).

A directory traversal flaw was found in the way the jar tool extracted
JAR archive files. A specially crafted JAR archive could cause jar
to overwrite arbitrary files writable by the user running jar when
the archive was extracted (CVE-2005-1080, CVE-2015-0480).

It was found that the RSA implementation in the JCE component in
OpenJDK did not follow recommended practices for implementing RSA
signatures (CVE-2015-0478).
