ID CVE-2008-5355
Summary The "Java Update" feature for Java Runtime Environment (JRE) for Sun JDK and JRE 6 Update 10 and earlier; JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 16 and earlier; and SDK and JRE 1.4.2_18 and earlier does not verify the signature of the JRE that is downloaded, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via DNS man-in-the-middle attacks.

CWE CWE-287
CAPEC
  • Authentication Abuse
    An attacker obtains unauthorized access to an application, service or device either through knowledge of the inherent weaknesses of an authentication mechanism, or by exploiting a flaw in the authentication scheme's implementation. In such an attack an authentication mechanism is functioning but a carefully controlled sequence of events causes the mechanism to grant access to the attacker. This attack may exploit assumptions made by the target's authentication procedures, such as assumptions regarding trust relationships or assumptions regarding the generation of secret values. This attack differs from Authentication Bypass attacks in that Authentication Abuse allows the attacker to be certified as a valid user through illegitimate means, while Authentication Bypass allows the user to access protected material without ever being certified as an authenticated user. This attack does not rely on prior sessions established by successfully authenticating users, as relied upon for the "Exploitation of Session Variables, Resource IDs and other Trusted Credentials" attack patterns.
  • Exploiting Trust in Client (aka Make the Client Invisible)
    An attack of this type exploits a programs' vulnerabilities in client/server communication channel authentication and data integrity. It leverages the implicit trust a server places in the client, or more importantly, that which the server believes is the client. An attacker executes this type of attack by placing themselves in the communication channel between client and server such that communication directly to the server is possible where the server believes it is communicating only with a valid client. There are numerous variations of this type of attack.
  • Utilizing REST's Trust in the System Resource to Register Man in the Middle
    This attack utilizes a REST(REpresentational State Transfer)-style applications' trust in the system resources and environment to place man in the middle once SSL is terminated. Rest applications premise is that they leverage existing infrastructure to deliver web services functionality. An example of this is a Rest application that uses HTTP Get methods and receives a HTTP response with an XML document. These Rest style web services are deployed on existing infrastructure such as Apache and IIS web servers with no SOAP stack required. Unfortunately from a security standpoint, there frequently is no interoperable identity security mechanism deployed, so Rest developers often fall back to SSL to deliver security. In large data centers, SSL is typically terminated at the edge of the network - at the firewall, load balancer, or router. Once the SSL is terminated the HTTP request is in the clear (unless developers have hashed or encrypted the values, but this is rare). The attacker can utilize a sniffer such as Wireshark to snapshot the credentials, such as username and password that are passed in the clear once SSL is terminated. Once the attacker gathers these credentials, they can submit requests to the web service provider just as authorized user do. There is not typically an authentication on the client side, beyond what is passed in the request itself so once this is compromised, then this is generally sufficient to compromise the service's authentication scheme.
  • Man in the Middle Attack
    This type of attack targets the communication between two components (typically client and server). The attacker places himself in the communication channel between the two components. Whenever one component attempts to communicate with the other (data flow, authentication challenges, etc.), the data first goes to the attacker, who has the opportunity to observe or alter it, and it is then passed on to the other component as if it was never intercepted. This interposition is transparent leaving the two compromised components unaware of the potential corruption or leakage of their communications. The potential for Man-in-the-Middle attacks yields an implicit lack of trust in communication or identify between two components.

    description a. Service Console update for DHCP and third-party library update for DHCP client. DHCP is an Internet-standard protocol by which a computer can be connected to a local network, ask to be given configuration information, and receive from a server enough information to configure itself as a member of that network. A stack-based buffer overflow in the script_write_params method in ISC DHCP dhclient allows remote DHCP servers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted subnet-mask option. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-0692 to this issue. An insecure temporary file use flaw was discovered in the DHCP daemon's init script ('/etc/init.d/dhcpd'). A local attacker could use this flaw to overwrite an arbitrary file with the output of the 'dhcpd -t' command via a symbolic link attack, if a system administrator executed the DHCP init script with the 'configtest', 'restart', or 'reload' option. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2009-1893 to this issue. b. Updated Service Console package kernel Service Console package kernel update to version kernel-2.4.21-58.EL. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the names CVE-2008-4210, CVE-2008-3275, CVE-2008-0598, CVE-2008-2136, CVE-2008-2812, CVE-2007-6063, CVE-2008-3525 to the security issues fixed in kernel-2.4.21-58.EL c. JRE Security Update JRE update to version 1.5.0_18, which addresses multiple security issues that existed in earlier releases of JRE. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the following names to the security issues fixed in JRE 1.5.0_17: CVE-2008-2086, CVE-2008-5347, CVE-2008-5348, CVE-2008-5349, CVE-2008-5350, CVE-2008-5351, CVE-2008-5352, CVE-2008-5353, CVE-2008-5354, CVE-2008-5356, CVE-2008-5357, CVE-2008-5358, CVE-2008-5359, CVE-2008-5360, CVE-2008-5339, CVE-2008-5342, CVE-2008-5344, CVE-2008-5345, CVE-2008-5346, CVE-2008-5340, CVE-2008-5341, CVE-2008-5343, and CVE-2008-5355.

    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200911-02 (Sun JDK/JRE: Multiple vulnerabilities) Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in the Sun Java implementation. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below and the associated Sun Alerts for details. Impact : A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted JAR archive, applet, or Java Web Start application, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application. Furthermore, a remote attacker could cause a Denial of Service affecting multiple services via several vectors, disclose information and memory contents, write or execute local files, conduct session hijacking attacks via GIFAR files, steal cookies, bypass the same-origin policy, load untrusted JAR files, establish network connections to arbitrary hosts and posts via several vectors, modify the list of supported graphics configurations, bypass HMAC-based authentication systems, escalate privileges via several vectors and cause applet code to be executed with older, possibly vulnerable versions of the JRE. NOTE: Some vulnerabilities require a trusted environment, user interaction, a DNS Man-in-the-Middle or Cross-Site-Scripting attack. Workaround : There is no known workaround at this time.

    description The version of Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on the remote host is earlier than 6 Update 11 / 5.0 Update 17 / 1.4.2_19 / 1.3.1_24. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues : - The JRE creates temporary files with insufficiently random names. (244986) - There are multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities involving the JRE's image processing code, its handling of GIF images, and its font processing. (244987) - It may be possible for an attacker to bypass security checks due to the manner in which it handles the 'non-shortest form' of UTF-8 byte sequences. - There are multiple security vulnerabilities in Java Web Start and Java Plug-in that may allow for privilege escalation. (244988) - The JRE Java Update mechanism does not check the digital signature of the JRE that it downloads. (244989) - A buffer overflow may allow an untrusted Java application that is launched through the command line to elevate its privileges. (244990) - A vulnerability related to deserializing calendar objects may allow an untrusted applet or application to elevate its privileges. (244991) - A buffer overflow affects the 'unpack200' JAR unpacking utility and may allow an untrusted applet or application to elevate its privileges with unpacking applets and Java Web Start applications. (244992) - The UTF-8 decoder accepts encodings longer than the 'shortest' form. Although not a vulnerability per se, it may be leveraged to exploit software that relies on the JRE UTF-8 decoder to reject the 'non-shortest form' sequence. (245246) - An untrusted applet or application may be able to list the contents of the home directory of the user running the applet or application. (246266) - A denial of service vulnerability may be triggered when the JRE handles certain RSA public keys. (246286) - A vulnerability may be triggered while authenticating users through Kerberos and lead to a system-wide denial of service due to excessive consumption of operating system resources. (246346) - Security vulnerabilities in the JAX-WS and JAXB packages where internal classes can be accessed may allow an untrusted applet or application to elevate privileges. (246366) - An untrusted applet or application when parsing zip files may be able to read arbitrary memory locations in the process that the applet or application is running. (246386) - The JRE allows code loaded from the local filesystem to access localhost. (246387)

    title openSUSE 10 Security Update : java-1_6_0-sun (java-1_6_0-sun-5876)
  • NASL family Windows
    NASL id SUN_JAVA_JRE_244986.NASL
    description The version of Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on the remote host is earlier than 6 Update 11 / 5.0 Update 17 / 1.4.2_19 / 1.3.1_24. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues : - The JRE creates temporary files with insufficiently random names. (244986) - There are multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities involving the JRE's image processing code, its handling of GIF images, and its font processing. (244987) - It may be possible for an attacker to bypass security checks due to the manner in which it handles the 'non-shortest form' of UTF-8 byte sequences. - There are multiple security vulnerabilities in Java Web Start and Java Plug-in that may allow for privilege escalation. (244988) - The JRE Java Update mechanism does not check the digital signature of the JRE that it downloads. (244989) - A buffer overflow may allow an untrusted Java application that is launched through the commandline to escalate its privileges. (244990) - A vulnerability related to deserializing calendar objects may allow an untrusted applet or application to escalate its privileges. (244991) - A buffer overflow affects the 'unpack200' JAR unpacking utility and may allow an untrusted applet or application to escalate its privileges with unpacking applets and Java Web Start applications. (244992) - The UTF-8 decoder accepts encodings longer than the 'shortest' form. Although not a vulnerability per se, it may be leveraged to exploit software that relies on the JRE UTF-8 decoder to reject the 'non-shortest form' sequence. (245246) - An untrusted applet or application may be able to list the contents of the home directory of the user running the applet or application. (246266) - A denial of service vulnerability may be triggered when the JRE handles certain RSA public keys. (246286) - A vulnerability may be triggered while authenticating users through Kerberos and lead to a system-wide denial of service due to excessive consumption of operating system resources. (246346) - Security vulnerabilities in the JAX-WS and JAXB packages where internal classes can be accessed may allow an untrusted applet or application to escalate privileges. (246366) - An untrusted applet or application when parsing zip files may be able to read arbitrary memory locations in the process that the applet or application is running. (246386) - The JRE allows code loaded from the local filesystem to access localhost. (246387)
