VUPEN Security Research - Oracle Java ICC Profile "scrn" Tag Integer Overflow Code Execution Vulnerability

http://www.vupen.com/english/research.php

I. BACKGROUND

"Java is a programming language and computing platform released by Sun Microsystems (now Oracle). It is the underlying technology that powers state-of-the-art programs including utilities, games, and business applications.

Java runs on more than 850 million personal computers worldwide, and on billions of devices worldwide, including mobile and TV devices."

II. DESCRIPTION

VUPEN Vulnerability Research Team discovered a critical vulnerability in Oracle Java.

The vulnerability is caused by an integer overflow error in the Color Management Module (CMM) when processing a malformed "scrn" tag within an ICC profile, which could be exploited by attackers to execute arbitrary code by tricking a user into visiting a specially crafted web page.

CVSS Score: 10 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)

III. AFFECTED PRODUCTS

Oracle Java JDK and JRE 6 Update 25 and prior
