    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.

(269868) - A command execution vulnerability exists in the Java runtime environment deployment toolkit. (269869) - An issue in the Java web start installer may be leveraged to allow an untrusted Java web start application to run as a trusted application. (269870) - Multiple buffer and integer overflow vulnerabilities. (270474) - A security vulnerability in the JRE with verifying HMAC digests may allow authentication to be bypassed. (270475) - Two vulnerabilities in the JRE with decoding DER encoded data and parsing HTTP headers may separately allow a remote client to cause the JRE on the server to run out of memory, resulting in a denial of service. (270476) - A directory traversal vulnerability in the ICC_Profile.getInstance method allows a remote attacker to determine the existence of local International Color Consortium (ICC) profile files. (Bug #6631533) - A denial of service attack is possible via a BMP file containing a link to a UNC share pathname for an International Color Consortium (ICC) profile file. (Bug #6632445) - Resurrected classloaders can still have children, which could allow a remote attacker to gain privileges via unspecified vectors. (Bug #6636650) - The Abstract Window Toolkit (AWT) does not properly restrict the objects that may be sent to loggers, which allows attackers to obtain sensitive information via vectors related to the implementation of Component, KeyboardFocusManager, and DefaultKeyboardFocusManager. (Bug #6664512) - An unspecified vulnerability in TrueType font parsing functionality may lead to a denial of service. (Bug #6815780) - The failure to clone arrays returned by the getConfigurations function could lead to multiple, unspecified vulnerabilities in the X11 and Win32GraphicsDevice subsystems.
