Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Moderate: java-1.6.0-bea security update Advisory ID: RHSA-2008:0245-01 Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Extras Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2008-0245.html Issue date: 2008-04-28 CVE Names: CVE-2008-0628 CVE-2008-1187 CVE-2008-1193 CVE-2008-1194 =====================================================================
  1. Summary:

Updated java-1.6.0-bea packages that correct several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Supplementary.

This update has been rated as having moderate 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 BEA WebLogic JRockit 1.6.0_03 JRE and SDK contain BEA WebLogic JRockit Virtual Machine 1.6.0_03, and are certified for the Java 6 Platform, Standard Edition, v1.6.0.

The Java XML parsing code processed external entity references even when the "external general entities" property was set to "FALSE". This allowed remote attackers to conduct XML External Entity (XXE) attacks, possibly causing a denial of service, or gaining access to restricted resources.
(CVE-2008-0628)
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)

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 vulnerabilities concerning applets listed above can only be triggered in java-1.6.0-bea, by calling the "appletviewer" application.

Users of java-1.6.0-bea are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
