Description

Issue Overview:

It was discovered that the Hotspot component in OpenJDK did not properly verify bytecode from the class files. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2014-4216 __, CVE-2014-4219 __)

A format string flaw was discovered in the Hotspot component event logger in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to crash the Java Virtual Machine or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the Java Virtual Machine. (CVE-2014-2490 __)

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-2014-4223 __, CVE-2014-4262 __, CVE-2014-2483 __)

Multiple flaws were discovered in the JMX, Libraries, Security, and Serviceability components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2014-4209 __, CVE-2014-4218 __, CVE-2014-4221 __, CVE-2014-4252 __, CVE-2014-4266 __)

It was discovered that the RSA algorithm in the Security component in OpenJDK did not sufficiently perform blinding while performing operations that were using private keys. An attacker able to measure timing differences of those operations could possibly leak information about the used keys. (CVE-2014-4244 __)

The Diffie-Hellman (DH) key exchange algorithm implementation in the Security component in OpenJDK failed to validate public DH parameters properly. This could cause OpenJDK to accept and use weak parameters, allowing an attacker to recover the negotiated key. (CVE-2014-4263 __)
