ScheduleWorld Permission Errors May Affect Security Dialogs
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1010935
SecurityTracker URL:
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Updated:  Aug 12 2004
Original Entry Date:  Aug 12 2004
Impact:   Denial of service via local system
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 1.4.12
Description:   A security exposure was reported in ScheduleWorld. In a certain configuration, some security dialogs may not be properly processed.

The vendor reported that there was a configuration error in the 'JGoodies' look and feel. By design, Java's security sandbox features do not permit JGoodies code to process security related dialogs, so if a security dialog is triggered when the JGoodies look and feel is enabled, Java will throw an exception (as it should) and the application will not properly process the security dialog.

[Editor's note: This type of issue may be considered as an operational bug rather than a security vulnerability in accordance with our criteria. However, because the incorrect operations involve security related dialogs, some customers may consider this to be a security relevant exposure.]

Impact:   The application may not properly process some security related dialogs.
Solution:   The vendor has released a fixed version (1.4.12), available at:

In the fixed version, the system look and feel is enabled before any security operations are performed.
