 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:161

 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : java-1.7.0-openjdk
 Date    : May 6, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated java-1.7.0-openjdk packages fix security vulnerabilities:
 
 Multiple flaws were discovered in the font layout engine in the 2D
 component. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly
 use these flaws to trigger Java Virtual Machine memory corruption
 (CVE-2013-1569, CVE-2013-2383, CVE-2013-2384).
 
 Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the
 Beans, Libraries, JAXP, and RMI components in OpenJDK. An untrusted
 Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java
 sandbox restrictions (CVE-2013-1558, CVE-2013-2422, CVE-2013-2436,
 CVE-2013-1518, CVE-2013-1557).
 
 The previous default value of the java.rmi.server.useCodebaseOnly
 property permitted the RMI implementation to automatically load
 classes from remotely specified locations. An attacker able to
 connect to an application using RMI could use this flaw to make
 the application execute arbitrary code (CVE-2013-1537). Note: The
 fix for CVE-2013-1537 changes the default value of the property to
 true, restricting class loading to the local CLASSPATH and locations
 specified in the java.rmi.server.codebase property. Refer to Red Hat
 Bugzilla bug 952387 for additional details.
 
 The 2D component did not properly process certain images. An untrusted
 Java application or applet could possibly use this flaw to trigger
 Java Virtual Machine memory corruption (CVE-2013-2420).
 
 It was discovered that the Hotspot component did not properly handle
 certain intrinsic frames, and did not correctly perform access checks
 and MethodHandle lookups. An untrusted Java application or applet could
 use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions (CVE-2013-2431,
 CVE-2013-2421, CVE-2013-2423).
 
 It was discovered that JPEGImageReader and JPEGImageWriter in the
 ImageIO component did not protect against modification of their state
 while performing certain native code operations. An untrusted Java
 application or applet could possibly use these flaws to trigger Java
 Virtual Machine memory corruption (CVE-2013-2429, CVE-2013-2430).
 
 The JDBC driver manager could incorrectly call the toString() method
 in JDBC drivers, and the ConcurrentHashMap class could incorrectly
 call the defaultReadObject() method. An untrusted Java application
 or applet could possibly use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox
 restrictions (CVE-2013-1488, CVE-2013-2426).
 
 The sun.awt.datatransfer.ClassLoaderObjectInputStream class may
 incorrectly invoke the system class loader. An untrusted Java
 application or applet could possibly use this flaw to bypass certain
 Java sandbox restrictions (CVE-2013-0401).
 
 Flaws were discovered in the Network component's InetAddress
 serialization, and the 2D component's font handling. An untrusted
 Java application or applet could possibly use these flaws to crash
 the Java Virtual Machine (CVE-2013-2417, CVE-2013-2419).
 
 The MBeanInstantiator class implementation in the OpenJDK JMX component
 did not properly check class access before creating new instances. An
 untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to create
 instances of non-public classes (CVE-2013-2424).
 
 It was discovered that JAX-WS could possibly create temporary files
 with insecure permissions. A local attacker could use this flaw
 to access temporary files created by an application using JAX-WS
 (CVE-2013-2415).
