Date:  Nov 9 2011
Impact:   Denial of service via network, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of system information, Modification of user information, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): JDK and JRE 7; JDK and JRE 6 Update 27 and prior; JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 31 and prior; SDK and JRE 1.4.2_33 and prior
Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Java Runtime Environment (JRE). A remote user can execute arbitrary code on the target system. A remote user can cause denial of service conditions.

A remote user can create a specially crafted Java applet or Java Web Start application that, when loaded by the target user, will access or modify data on the target user's system or execute arbitrary code on the target user's system. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A remote user can also cause denial of service conditions.

The following researchers reported these and other Oracle vulnerabilities:

Adam Barth; axtaxt via Tipping Point's Zero Day Initiative; Eric Rescorla; Juliano Rizzo; Michael Schierl via Tipping Point; Neal Poole; Roee Hay of IBM Rational Application Security Research Group; Sami Koivu via Tipping Point's Zero Day Initiative; Thai Duong; and Yair Amit of IBM Rational Application Security Research Group.

Impact:   A remote user can create a Java applet or Java Web Start application that, when loaded by the target user, will access or modify data or execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.

A remote user can cause denial of service conditions on the target system.

Solution:   Apple has issued a fix for CVE-2011-3521, CVE-2011-3544, CVE-2011-3545, CVE-2011-3546, CVE-2011-3547, CVE-2011-3548, CVE-2011-3549, CVE-2011-3551, CVE-2011-3552, CVE-2011-3553, CVE-2011-3554, CVE-2011-3556, CVE-2011-3557, CVE-2011-3558, CVE-2011-3560, and CVE-2011-3561 (Java for Mac OS X 10.7 Update 1 and Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 6), available from the Software Update pane in System Preferences, or Apple's Software Downloads web site at:
