Version Summary:HP has released security bulletins and updated software to address the Oracle Java IntegerComponentRaster class buffer overflow vulnerability.
 
 
Description
A vulnerability in the java.awt.image.IntegerComponentRaster class could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on a targeted system with the privileges of the targeted user.

The vulnerability is due to improper boundary restrictions on input processed by the affected software. An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by convincing a targeted user to view a website that contains a malicious Java applet.

Oracle has confirmed the vulnerability in a security bulletin and released software updates.
 
Warning Indicators
Java SE JDK and JRE 7 Update 21 and prior, JDK and JRE 6 Update 45 and prior, JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 45 and prior, and JavaFX 2.2.21 and prior are vulnerable.
 
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.

This vulnerability was corrected in the Oracle Java SE Critical Patch Update June 2013 as documented in IntelliShield alert 29704.
 
Vendor Announcements

HP has released security bulletins c03874547 and c03868911 at the following links: HPSBUX02908 and HPSBUX02907.

Red Hat has released an official CVE statement and security advisories for bug 975102 at the following links: CVE-2013-2471, RHSA-2013:1059, RHSA-2013:1060, and RHSA-2013:1081
 
Impact
An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary commands on the targeted system with the privileges of the targeted user. If that user holds elevated privileges, the attacker could completely compromise the targeted system.
 
Technical Information
The vulnerability is due to improper boundary restrictions by the java.awt.image.IntegerComponentRaster class within Java.

An unauthenticated, remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability by convincing a targeted user to view a malicious applet that attempts to send overly large input to the vulnerable class object. The processing of the overly large input could trigger a buffer overflow condition that the attacker could leverage to execute arbitrary code on the targeted system with the privileges of the targeted user.
