Version Summary:HP has released an additional security bulletin and software updates to address the Oracle Java SE security bypass arbitrary code execution vulnerabilities.
 
 
Description
Oracle Java SE contains vulnerabilities that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a targeted system.

These vulnerabilities are due to improper security restrictions imposed by the 2D component of the affected software. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to visit a malicious web page that contains a crafted Java applet. Processing the web page could allow the attacker to bypass Java sandbox security restrictions and execute arbitrary code on the system.

Functional code that exploits the vulnerability is publicly available.

Oracle has confirmed these vulnerabilities and released patches.
 
Warning Indicators
The following Oracle products are vulnerable:
  • JDK and JRE 7 Update 15 and earlier
  • JDK and JRE 6 Update 41 and earlier
  • JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 40 and earlier
 
IntelliShield Analysis
To exploit the vulnerability, the attacker may provide a link that directs a user to a malicious site and use misleading language or instructions to persuade the user to follow the provided link.

Reports indicate that this vulnerability is being exploited actively in the wild.

These vulnerabilities are not exploitable on Java running on servers, standalone Java desktop applications, or embedded Java applications and Oracle server-based software.

Impact
An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to bypass the Java sandbox security restriction and execute arbitrary code on a targeted system. Successful exploitation could lead to a complete system compromise.
 
Technical Information
The vulnerability exists in the initImageLayouts native function used by the affected software.

An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by convincing a targeted user to open a crafted web page that contains a custom image class, inheriting from standard Java classes. Successful exploitation could allow the Java class to call the native function with the crafted parameters. An attacker could leverage this to execute arbitrary code under the context of a user running the process.
 
Safeguards
Administrators are advised to apply the appropriate updates.

Users are advised not to open e-mail messages from suspicious or unrecognized sources. If users cannot verify that links or attachments included in e-mail messages are safe, they are advised not to open them.

Administrators are advised to monitor affected systems.
