Mageia Bugzilla – Bug 10054
java-1.6.0-openjdk CVE-2013-2415 not fully fixed in IcedTea6 1.11.10
Last modified: 2013-07-16 09:27:39 CEST
Upstream released IcedTea6 1.11.11 on April 24:
Apparently CVE-2013-2415 wasn't fully fixed in 1.11.10. This is a low severity issue, so I'm not currently planning on issuing another update just for this.
It is checked into Mageia 2 SVN.
Steps to Reproduce:
I just submitted java-1.6.0-openjdk-126.96.36.199-41.b24.1.mga2 which provides icedtea6-188.8.131.52 as of https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-1014.html that is the exact list of cve's as of http://advisories.mageia.org/MGASA-2013-0185.html
I just submitted java-1.6.0-openjdk-184.108.40.206-42.b24.1.mga2 which provides icedtea6-1.11.12 and has an additional fix for CVE-2013-2451
Thanks Oden! I missed RHSA-2013-1014 :o(
As indicated in the comment below, we'll have to update icedtea-web too.
Updated java-1.6.0-openjdk packages fix security vulnerabilities:
Multiple flaws were discovered in the ImagingLib and the image attribute,
channel, layout and raster processing in the 2D component. An untrusted
Java application or applet could possibly use these flaws to trigger Java
Virtual Machine memory corruption (CVE-2013-2470, CVE-2013-2471,
CVE-2013-2472, CVE-2013-2473, CVE-2013-2463, CVE-2013-2465, CVE-2013-2469).
Integer overflow flaws were found in the way AWT processed certain input.
An attacker could use these flaws to execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running an untrusted Java applet or application
Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the Sound and
JMX components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could
use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions (CVE-2013-2448,
Multiple flaws in the Serialization, Networking, Libraries and CORBA
components can be exploited by an untrusted Java application or applet to
gain access to potentially sensitive information (CVE-2013-2456,
CVE-2013-2447, CVE-2013-2455, CVE-2013-2452, CVE-2013-2443, CVE-2013-2446).
It was discovered that the Hotspot component did not properly handle
out-of-memory errors. An untrusted Java application or applet could
possibly use these flaws to terminate the Java Virtual Machine
It was discovered that the AWT component did not properly manage certain
resources and that the ObjectStreamClass of the Serialization component
did not properly handle circular references. An untrusted Java application
or applet could possibly use these flaws to cause a denial of service
It was discovered that the Libraries component contained certain errors
related to XML security and the class loader. A remote attacker could
possibly exploit these flaws to bypass intended security mechanisms or
disclose potentially sensitive information and cause a denial of service
It was discovered that JConsole did not properly inform the user when
establishing an SSL connection failed. An attacker could exploit this flaw
to gain access to potentially sensitive information (CVE-2013-2412).
It was found that documentation generated by Javadoc was vulnerable to a
frame injection attack. If such documentation was accessible over a
network, and a remote attacker could trick a user into visiting a
specially-crafted URL, it would lead to arbitrary web content being
displayed next to the documentation. This could be used to perform a
phishing attack by providing frame content that spoofed a login form on
the site hosting the vulnerable documentation (CVE-2013-1571).
It was discovered that the 2D component created shared memory segments with
insecure permissions. A local attacker could use this flaw to read or write
to the shared memory segment (CVE-2013-1500).
It was discovered that the Networking component did not properly enforce
exclusive port binding. A local attacker could exploit this flaw to bind to
ports intended to be exclusively bound (CVE-2013-2451).
This updates IcedTea6 to version 1.11.12, which fixes these issues, as well
as several other bugs.
Additionally, this OpenJDK update causes icedtea-web, the Java browser
plugin, to crash, so icedtea-web has been patched to fix this on Mageia 2.
Updated packages in core/updates_testing:
Testing complete mga2 32
Java 1.6 is used by icedtea-web in mageia 2 for java in web browsers
Mageia 3 now uses java 1.7
Tested at java test sites
Testing complete mga2 64
Validating. Advisory from comment 2 uploaded.
Could sysadmin please push from 2 core/updates_testing to core/updates
