1. Summary:

 

Updated java-1.6.0-openjdk packages that fix several security issues are

now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

 

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having

important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base

scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each

vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

 

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

 

Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64

 

3. Description:

 

These packages provide the OpenJDK 6 Java Runtime Environment and the

OpenJDK 6 Software Development Kit.

 

Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the AWT,

CORBA, JMX, and Libraries components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java

application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox

restrictions. (CVE-2013-0442, CVE-2013-0445, CVE-2013-0441, CVE-2013-1475,

CVE-2013-1476, CVE-2013-0429, CVE-2013-0450, CVE-2013-0425, CVE-2013-0426,

CVE-2013-0428)

 

Multiple flaws were found in the way image parsers in the 2D and AWT

components handled image raster parameters. A specially-crafted image could

cause Java Virtual Machine memory corruption and, possibly, lead to

arbitrary code execution with the virtual machine privileges.

(CVE-2013-1478, CVE-2013-1480)

 

A flaw was found in the AWT component's clipboard handling code. An

untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to access

clipboard data, bypassing Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-0432)

 

The default Java security properties configuration did not restrict access

to certain com.sun.xml.internal packages. An untrusted Java application or

applet could use this flaw to access information, bypassing certain Java

sandbox restrictions. This update lists the whole package as restricted.

(CVE-2013-0435)

 

Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the Libraries,

Networking, and JAXP components. An untrusted Java application or applet

could use these flaws to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions.

(CVE-2013-0427, CVE-2013-0433, CVE-2013-0434)

 

It was discovered that the RMI component's CGIHandler class used user

inputs in error messages without any sanitization. An attacker could use

this flaw to perform a cross-site scripting (XSS) attack. (CVE-2013-0424)

 

It was discovered that the SSL/TLS implementation in the JSSE component

did not properly enforce handshake message ordering, allowing an unlimited

number of handshake restarts. A remote attacker could use this flaw to

make an SSL/TLS server using JSSE consume an excessive amount of CPU by

continuously restarting the handshake. (CVE-2013-0440)

 

It was discovered that the JSSE component did not properly validate

Diffie-Hellman public keys. An SSL/TLS client could possibly use this flaw

to perform a small subgroup attack. (CVE-2013-0443)

 

This erratum also upgrades the OpenJDK package to IcedTea6 1.11.6. Refer to

the NEWS file, linked to in the References, for further information.

 

All users of java-1.6.0-openjdk are advised to upgrade to these updated

packages, which resolve these issues. All running instances of OpenJDK Java

must be restarted for the update to take effect.

 

4. Solution:

 

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata

relevant to your system have been applied.

 

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
