   Environment component in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update
   18 and 5.0 Update 23 allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality,
   integrity, and availability via unknown vectors. NOTE: the previous
   information was obtained from the March 2010 CPU. Oracle has not
   commented on claims from a reliable researcher that this is due to
   missing privilege checks during deserialization of RMIConnectionImpl
   objects, which allows remote attackers to call system-level Java
   functions via the ClassLoader of a constructor that is being
   deserialized.

   CVE-2010-0095: Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime

   CVE-2010-0838: Unspecified vulnerability in the Java 2D component
   in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 18, 5.0, Update,
   and 23 allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity,
   and availability via unknown vectors. NOTE: the previous information
   was obtained from the March 2010 CPU.  Oracle has not commented on
   claims from a reliable researcher that this is a stack-based buffer
   overflow using an untrusted size value in the readMabCurveData function
   in the CMM module in the JVM.

   CVE-2010-0839: Unspecified vulnerability in the Sound component
   in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 18, 5.0 Update

   Environment component in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update
   18, 5.0 Update 23, and 1.4.2_25 allows remote attackers to affect
   confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors. NOTE:
   the previous information was obtained from the March 2010 CPU. Oracle
   has not commented on claims from a reliable researcher that this is
   related to improper checks when executing privileged methods in the
   Java Runtime Environment (JRE), which allows attackers to execute
   arbitrary code via (1) an untrusted object that extends the trusted
   class but has not modified a certain method, or (2) "a similar trust
   issue with interfaces," aka "Trusted Methods Chaining Remote Code
   Execution Vulnerability."

   CVE-2010-0841: Unspecified vulnerability in the ImageIO component in
   Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 18, 5.0 Update 23, and
   1.4.2_25 allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity,
   and availability via unknown vectors. NOTE: the previous information
   was obtained from the March 2010 CPU. Oracle has not commented on
   claims from a reliable researcher that this is an integer overflow in
   the Java Runtime Environment that allows remote attackers to execute
   arbitrary code via a JPEG image that contains subsample dimensions
   with large values, related to JPEGImageReader and "stepX".

   CVE-2010-0842: Unspecified vulnerability in the Sound component
   in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 18, 5.0 Update
   23, 1.4.2_25, and 1.3.1_27 allows remote attackers to affect
   confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors. NOTE:
   the previous information was obtained from the March 2010 CPU. Oracle
   has not commented on claims from a reliable researcher that this is
   an uncontrolled array index that allows remote attackers to execute
   arbitrary code via a MIDI file with a crafted MixerSequencer object,
   related to the GM_Song structure.

   CVE-2010-0843: Unspecified vulnerability in the Sound component
   in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 18, 5.0 Update
   23, 1.4.2_25, and 1.3.1_27 allows remote attackers to affect
   confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors. NOTE:
   the previous information was obtained from the March 2010 CPU. Oracle
   has not commented on claims from a reliable researcher that this is
   related to XNewPtr and improper handling of an integer parameter
   when allocating heap memory in the com.sun.media.sound libraries,
   which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.

   CVE-2010-0844: Unspecified vulnerability in the Sound component
   in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 18, 5.0 Update
   23, 1.4.2_25, and 1.3.1_27 allows remote attackers to affect
   confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors. NOTE:
   the previous information was obtained from the March 2010 CPU. Oracle
   has not commented on claims from a reliable researcher that this
   is for improper parsing of a crafted MIDI stream when creating a
   MixerSequencer object, which causes a pointer to be corrupted and
   allows a NULL byte to be written to arbitrary memory.

   CVE-2010-0846: Unspecified vulnerability in the ImageIO component
   in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 18, 5.0 Update
   23, 1.4.2_25, and 1.3.1_27 allows remote attackers to affect
   confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors. NOTE:
   the previous information was obtained from the March 2010 CPU. Oracle
   has not commented on claims from a reliable researcher that this is
   a heap-based buffer overflow that allows remote attackers to execute
   arbitrary code, related to an "invalid assignment" and inconsistent
   length values in a JPEG image encoder (JPEGImageEncoderImpl).

   CVE-2010-0847: Unspecified vulnerability in the Java 2D component
   in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 18, 5.0 Update
   23, 1.4.2_25, and 1.3.1_27 allows remote attackers to affect
   confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors. NOTE:
   the previous information was obtained from the March 2010 CPU. Oracle
   has not commented on claims from a reliable researcher that this is
   a heap-based buffer overflow that allows arbitrary code execution
   via a crafted image.

   CVE-2010-0848: Unspecified vulnerability in the Java 2D component
   in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 18, 5.0 Update
   23, 1.4.2_25, and 1.3.1_27 allows remote attackers to affect
   confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors.

   CVE-2010-0849: Unspecified vulnerability in the Java 2D component
   in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 18, 5.0 Update
   23, 1.4.2_25, and 1.3.1_27 allows remote attackers to affect
   confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors. NOTE:
   the previous information was obtained from the March 2010 CPU. Oracle
   has not commented on claims from a reliable researcher that this
   is a heap-based buffer overflow in a decoding routine used by the
   JPEGImageDecoderImpl interface, which allows code execution via a
   crafted JPEG image.

2) Solution or Work-Around

   There is no known workaround, please install the update packages.

3) Special Instructions and Notes

   Please restart applications using Java after installing this update.

4) Package Location and Checksums

   The preferred method for installing security updates is to use the YaST
   Online Update (YOU) tool. YOU detects which updates are required and
   automatically performs the necessary steps to verify and install them.
   Alternatively, download the update packages for your distribution manually
   and verify their integrity by the methods listed in Section 6 of this
   announcement. Then install the packages using the command

     rpm -Fhv 

   to apply the update, replacing  with the filename of the
   downloaded RPM package.

   Our maintenance customers are notified individually. The packages are
   offered for installation from the maintenance web:

6) Authenticity Verification and Additional Information

  - Announcement authenticity verification:

    SUSE security announcements are published via mailing lists and on Web
    sites. The authenticity and integrity of a SUSE security announcement is
    guaranteed by a cryptographic signature in each announcement. All SUSE
    security announcements are published with a valid signature.

    To verify the signature of the announcement, save it as text into a file
    and run the command

      gpg --verify 

    replacing  with the name of the file where you saved the
    announcement. The output for a valid signature looks like:

      gpg: Signature made  using RSA key ID 3D25D3D9
      gpg: Good signature from "SuSE Security Team "

    where  is replaced by the date the document was signed.

    If the security team's key is not contained in your key ring, you can
    import it from the first installation CD. To import the key, use the
    command

      gpg --import gpg-pubkey-3d25d3d9-36e12d04.asc

  - Package authenticity verification:

    SUSE update packages are available on many mirror FTP servers all over the
    world. While this service is considered valuable and important to the free
    and open source software community, the authenticity and the integrity of
    a package needs to be verified to ensure that it has not been tampered
    with.

    The internal rpm package signatures provide an easy way to verify the
    authenticity of an RPM package. Use the command

     rpm -v --checksig 

    to verify the signature of the package, replacing  with the
    filename of the RPM package downloaded. The package is unmodified if it
    contains a valid signature from build@suse.de with the key ID 9C800ACA.

    This key is automatically imported into the RPM database (on
    RPMv4-based distributions) and the gpg key ring of 'root' during
    installation. You can also find it on the first installation CD and at
    the end of this announcement.

  - SUSE runs two security mailing lists to which any interested party may
    subscribe:

    opensuse-security@opensuse.org
        -   General Linux and SUSE security discussion.
            All SUSE security announcements are sent to this list.
            To subscribe, send an e-mail to
                .

    opensuse-security-announce@opensuse.org
        -   SUSE's announce-only mailing list.
            Only SUSE's security announcements are sent to this list.
            To subscribe, send an e-mail to
                .
