Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Sun Java:

* Daniel Soeder discovered that a long codebase attribute string in a
 JNLP file will overflow a stack variable when launched by Java
 WebStart (CVE-2007-3655).

* Multiple vulnerabilities (CVE-2007-2435, CVE-2007-2788,
 CVE-2007-2789) that were previously reported as GLSA 200705-23 and
 GLSA 200706-08 also affect 1.4 and 1.6 SLOTs, which was not mentioned
 in the initial revision of said GLSAs.

* The Zero Day Initiative, TippingPoint and John Heasman reported
 multiple buffer overflows and unspecified vulnerabilities in Java Web
 Start (CVE-2008-1188, CVE-2008-1189, CVE-2008-1190, CVE-2008-1191).

* Hisashi Kojima of Fujitsu and JPCERT/CC reported a security issue
 when performing XSLT transformations (CVE-2008-1187).

* CERT/CC reported a Stack-based buffer overflow in Java Web Start
 when using JNLP files (CVE-2008-1196).

* Azul Systems reported an unspecified vulnerability that allows
 applets to escalate their privileges (CVE-2007-5689).

* Billy Rios, Dan Boneh, Collin Jackson, Adam Barth, Andrew Bortz,
 Weidong Shao, and David Byrne discovered multiple instances where
 Java applets or JavaScript programs run within browsers do not pin
 DNS hostnames to a single IP address, allowing for DNS rebinding
 attacks (CVE-2007-5232, CVE-2007-5273, CVE-2007-5274).

* Peter Csepely reported that Java Web Start does not properly
 enforce access restrictions for untrusted applications
 (CVE-2007-5237, CVE-2007-5238).

* Java Web Start does not properly enforce access restrictions for
 untrusted Java applications and applets, when handling drag-and-drop
 operations (CVE-2007-5239).

* Giorgio Maone discovered that warnings for untrusted code can be
 hidden under applications' windows (CVE-2007-5240).

* Fujitsu reported two security issues where security restrictions of
 web applets and applications were not properly enforced
 (CVE-2008-1185, CVE-2008-1186).

* John Heasman of NGSSoftware discovered that the Java Plug-in does
 not properly enforce the same origin policy (CVE-2008-1192).

* Chris Evans of the Google Security Team discovered multiple
 unspecified vulnerabilities within the Java Runtime Environment Image
 Parsing Library (CVE-2008-1193, CVE-2008-1194).

* Gregory Fleischer reported that web content fetched via the "jar:"
 protocol was not subject to network access restrictions
 (CVE-2008-1195).

* Chris Evans and Johannes Henkel of the Google Security Team
 reported that the XML parsing code retrieves external entities even
 when that feature is disabled (CVE-2008-0628).

* Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities might allow for escalation of
 privileges (CVE-2008-0657).

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to run a specially crafted applet
on a website or start an application in Java Web Start to execute
arbitrary code outside of the Java sandbox and of the Java security
restrictions with the privileges of the user running Java. The attacker
could also obtain sensitive information, create, modify, rename and
read local files, execute local applications, establish connections in
the local network, bypass the same origin policy, and cause a Denial of
Service via multiple vectors.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Sun JRE users should upgrade to the latest version:

   # emerge --sync
   # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "dev-java/sun-jre-bin"

All Sun JDK users should upgrade to the latest version:

   # emerge --sync
   # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "dev-java/sun-jdk"

All emul-linux-x86-java users should upgrade to the latest version:

   # emerge --sync
   # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose "app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-java"
