Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2008:0156

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2008:0156.

The BEA WebLogic JRockit 1.5.0_14 JRE and SDK contain BEA WebLogic JRockit
Virtual Machine 1.5.0_14 and are certified for the Java 5 Platform,
Standard Edition, v1.5.0.

A flaw in the applet caching mechanism of the Java Runtime Environment
(JRE) did not correctly process the creation of network connections. A
remote attacker could use this flaw to create connections to services on
machines other than the one that the applet was downloaded from.

Untrusted Java Applets were able to drag and drop a file to a Desktop
Application. A user-assisted remote attacker could use this flaw to move or
copy arbitrary files. (CVE-2007-5239)

The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) allowed untrusted Java Applets or
applications to display oversized windows. This could be used by remote
attackers to hide security warning banners. (CVE-2007-5240)

Unsigned Java Applets communicating via a HTTP proxy could allow a remote
attacker to violate the Java security model. A cached, malicious Applet
could create network connections to services on other machines. (CVE-2007-5273)

Two vulnerabilities in the Java Runtime Environment allowed an untrusted
application or applet to elevate the assigned privileges. This could be
misused by a malicious website to read and write local files or execute
local applications in the context of the user running the Java process.

Those vulnerabilities concerned with applets can only be triggered in
java-1.5.0-bea by calling the 'appletviewer' application.

All users of java-1.5.0-bea should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain the BEA WebLogic JRockit 1.5.0_14 release that resolves these issues.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
