Description

Issue Overview:

An input validation flaw was discovered in the medialib library in the 2D component. A specially crafted image could trigger Java Virtual Machine memory corruption when processed. A remote attacker, or an untrusted Java application or applet, could possibly use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the Java Virtual Machine. (CVE-2014-0429 __)

Multiple flaws were discovered in the Hotspot and 2D components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to trigger Java Virtual Machine memory corruption and possibly bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2014-0456 __, CVE-2014-2397 __, CVE-2014-2421 __)

Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the Libraries component in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2014-0457 __, CVE-2014-0455 __, CVE-2014-0461 __)

Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the AWT, JAX-WS, JAXB, Libraries, Security, Sound, and 2D components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2014-2412 __, CVE-2014-0451 __, CVE-2014-0458 __, CVE-2014-2423 __, CVE-2014-0452 __, CVE-2014-2414 __, CVE-2014-2402 __, CVE-2014-0446 __, CVE-2014-2413 __, CVE-2014-0454 __, CVE-2014-2427 __, CVE-2014-0459 __)

Multiple flaws were identified in the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) DNS client. These flaws could make it easier for a remote attacker to perform DNS spoofing attacks. (CVE-2014-0460 __)

It was discovered that the JAXP component did not properly prevent access to arbitrary files when a SecurityManager was present. This flaw could cause a Java application using JAXP to leak sensitive information, or affect application availability. (CVE-2014-2403 __)

It was discovered that the Security component in OpenJDK could leak some timing information when performing PKCS#1 unpadding. This could possibly lead to the disclosure of some information that was meant to be protected by encryption. (CVE-2014-0453 __)

It was discovered that the fix for CVE-2013-5797 __ did not properly resolve input sanitization flaws in javadoc. When javadoc documentation was generated from an untrusted Java source code and hosted on a domain not controlled by the code author, these issues could make it easier to perform cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. (CVE-2014-2398 __)

An insecure temporary file use flaw was found in the way the unpack200 utility created log files. A local attacker could possibly use this flaw to perform a symbolic link attack and overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the user running unpack200. (CVE-2014-1876 __)
