(Red Hat Issues Fix) Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Scripting Language Bugs Let Remote Users Access Files and Gain Privileges on the Target System
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1020488
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1020488
CVE Reference:   CVE-2008-3109, CVE-2008-3110   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Jul 14 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  
Version(s): JDK and JRE 6 Update 6 and prior versions
Description:   A vulnerability was reported in Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in the processing of scripting code. A remote user can access files on the target user's system. A remote user can cause arbitrary applications on the target user's system to be executed.

A remote user can create a specially crafted applet or application that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a flaw in the processing of scripting language to gain access to files on the target system or execute arbitrary applications residing on the target system. The remote applet can also access information from another applet.

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-1.6.0-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:

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. 

A vulnerability was found in the Java Management Extensions (JMX)
management agent, when local monitoring is enabled. This allowed remote
attackers to perform illegal operations. (CVE-2008-3103)

Multiple vulnerabilities with unsigned applets were reported. A remote
attacker could misuse an unsigned applet to connect to localhost services
running on the host running the applet. (CVE-2008-3104)

Several vulnerabilities in the Java API for XML Web Services (JAX-WS)
client and service implementation were found. A remote attacker who caused
malicious XML to be processed by a trusted or untrusted application was
able access URLs or cause a denial of service. (CVE-2008-3105, CVE-2008-3106)

A JRE vulnerability could be triggered by an untrusted application or
applet. A remote attacker could grant an untrusted applet or application
extended privileges such as being able to read and write local files, or
execute local programs. (CVE-2008-3107)

Several vulnerabilities within the JRE scripting support were reported. A
remote attacker could grant an untrusted applet extended privileges such as
reading and writing local files, executing local programs, or querying the
sensitive data of other applets. (CVE-2008-3109, CVE-2008-3110)

A vulnerability in Java Web Start was found. A remote attacker was able to
create arbitrary files with the permissions of the user running the
untrusted Java Web Start application. (CVE-2008-3112)

Another vulnerability in Java Web Start when processing untrusted
applications was reported. An attacker was able to acquire sensitive
information, such as the cache location. (CVE-2008-3114)

Users of java-1.6.0-sun should upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct these issues.
