Description

Updated java-1.6.0-openjdk packages that fix two security issues are now available for CentOS Linux 6. The CentOS Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

These packages provide the OpenJDK 6 Java Runtime Environment and the OpenJDK 6 Software Development Kit. It was discovered that the Beans component in OpenJDK did not perform permission checks properly. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to use classes from restricted packages, allowing it to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2012-1682) A hardening fix was applied to the AWT component in OpenJDK, removing functionality from the restricted SunToolkit class that was used in combination with other flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2012-0547) Note: If the web browser plug-in provided by the icedtea-web package was installed, the issues exposed via Java applets could have been exploited without user interaction if a user visited a malicious website. This erratum also upgrades the OpenJDK package to IcedTea6 1.11.4. Refer to the NEWS file, linked to in the References, for further information. All users of java-1.6.0-openjdk are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues. All running instances of OpenJDK Java must be restarted for the update to take effect.

Solution

  • CentOS Linux >= 6 and < 7 (x86)

    Upgrade java-1.6.0-openjdk

    Update java-1.6.0-openjdk to the latest version available from CentOS, using tools like yum or up2date.

    Because CentOS RPMs are built off of RedHat SRPMs, there is a delay between when a vulnerability is published and fixed in the RedHat SRPMs and the time that CentOS in turn rebuilds and redistributes the updated RPMs. As such, there may be cases where the updated RPM(s) listed here might not exist in the CentOS RPM repositories yet.

  • CentOS Linux >= 6 and < 7 (x86)

    Upgrade java-1.6.0-openjdk-debuginfo

    Update java-1.6.0-openjdk-debuginfo to the latest version available from CentOS, using tools like yum or up2date.
