SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1019560
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1019560
CVE Reference:   CVE-2008-1196   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Mar 7 2008
Impact:   Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  

Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Java Web Start. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system.

A remote user can create a specially crafted applet that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a buffer overflow in Java Web Start to gain access to files on the target user's system or execute arbitrary applications located on the target system.

CERT/CC reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can create an applet that, when loaded by the target user, will access files or execute arbitrary applications on the target user's system.
Solution:   Red Hat has released a fix.

1. Summary:

Updated java-1.5.0-sun packages that correct several security issues are
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Extras and 5 Supplementary.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 Extras - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 4 Extras - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 Extras - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 Extras - i386, x86_64
RHEL Desktop Supplementary (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
RHEL Supplementary (v. 5 server) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) contains the software and tools
that users need to run applets and applications written using the Java
programming language. 

Flaws in the JRE allowed an untrusted application or applet to elevate its
privileges. This could be exploited by a remote attacker to access local
files or execute local applications accessible to the user running the JRE
(CVE-2008-1185, CVE-2008-1186)

A flaw was found in the Java XSLT processing classes. An untrusted
application or applet could cause a denial of service, or execute arbitrary
code with the permissions of the user running the JRE. (CVE-2008-1187)

Several buffer overflow flaws were found in Java Web Start (JWS). An
untrusted JNLP application could access local files or execute local
applications accessible to the user running the JRE.
(CVE-2008-1188, CVE-2008-1189, CVE-2008-1190, CVE-2008-1191, CVE-2008-1196)

A flaw was found in the Java Plug-in. A remote attacker could bypass the
same origin policy, executing arbitrary code with the permissions of the
user running the JRE. (CVE-2008-1192)

A flaw was found in the JRE image parsing libraries. An untrusted
application or applet could cause a denial of service, or possible execute
arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running the JRE.
(CVE-2008-1193)

A flaw was found in the JRE color management library.  An untrusted
application or applet could trigger a denial of service (JVM crash).
(CVE-2008-1194)

The JRE allowed untrusted JavaScript code to create local network
connections by the use of Java APIs.  A remote attacker could use these
flaws to acesss local network services. (CVE-2008-1195)

This update also fixes an issue where the Java Plug-in is not available for
browser use after successful installation.

Users of java-1.5.0-sun should upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  Details on how to use
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
