______________________________________________________________________________

1) Problem Description and Brief Discussion

   Both the IBM and Sun Java environments had several security issues
   which have been fixed by upgrading to their current patch levels.

   IBM Java JRE/SDK 1.3   was updated to 1.3.1 SR10.
   IBM Java JRE/SDK 1.4   was updated to 1.4.2 SR8.
   IBM Java JRE/SDK 5     was updated to 5.0 SR3.
   Sun Java JRE/SDK 1.3   was updated to 1.3.1_20.
   Sun Java JRE/SDK 1.4   was updated to 1.4.2_15.
   Sun Java JRE/SDK 1.5.0 was updated to 1.5.0_12.

   For IBM Java please also check the web page
       http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/java/jdk/alerts/
   for more details.

   For Sun Java please also check the web page
       http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-26-102934-1
   for more details.

   Affecting both sets of JDKs:
   - CVE-2007-0243: A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java(TM)
     Runtime Environment may allow an untrusted applet to elevate its
     privileges. For example, an applet may grant itself permissions to
     read and write local files or execute local applications that are
     accessible to the user running the untrusted applet.

   IBM Java specific (fixed already for Sun Java in SUSE-SA:2007:003) problems:
   - CVE-2006-6737/CVE-2006-6736: Two vulnerabilities in the Java Runtime
     Environment may independently allow an untrusted applet to access
     data in other applets.

   - CVE-2006-6745: Two vulnerabilities in the Java(TM) Runtime
     Environment with serialization may independently allow an untrusted
     applet or application to elevate its privileges.

   Sun Java specific (fixed for IBM Java in later versions):
   - CVE-2007-2788 / CVE-2007-3004: Integer overflow in the embedded ICC
     profile image parser in Sun Java Development Kit (JDK), allows
     remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of
     service (JVM crash) via a crafted JPEG or BMP file.

   - CVE-2007-2789 / CVE-2007-3005: The BMP image parser in Sun Java
     Development Kit (JDK), on Unix/Linux systems, allows remote attackers
     to trigger the opening of arbitrary local files via a crafted BMP
     file, which causes a denial of service (system hang) in certain
     cases such as /dev/tty, and has other unspecified impact.

   - CVE-2007-0243: Buffer overflow in Sun JDK and Java Runtime
     Environment (JRE) allows applets to gain privileges via a GIF image
     with a block with a 0 width field, which triggers memory corruption.

2) Solution or Work-Around

   There is no known workaround, please install the update packages.

3) Special Instructions and Notes

   Please restart running Java instances.

4) Package Location and Checksums

   The preferred method for installing security updates is to use the YaST
   Online Update (YOU) tool. YOU detects which updates are required and
   automatically performs the necessary steps to verify and install them.
   Alternatively, download the update packages for your distribution manually
   and verify their integrity by the methods listed in Section 6 of this
   announcement. Then install the packages using the command

     rpm -Fhv <file.rpm>

   to apply the update, replacing <file.rpm> with the filename of the
   downloaded RPM package.

5) Pending Vulnerabilities, Solutions, and Work-Arounds:

   - Correction for kernel advisory SUSE-SA:2007:043

     The Linux kernel security advisory SUSE-SA:2007:043 incorrectly lists
     various SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 products as being affected.

     Correction:
     The advisory SUSE-SA:2007:043 only applies to the SUSE Linux 10.0
     and openSUSE 10.2 products.

     The last SLES 9 kernel advisory is SUSE-SA:2007:035 and already
     contains most of the fixes listed.  The fixes not listed yet will
     be fixed with the next SLES 9 kernel update.

6) Authenticity Verification and Additional Information

  - Announcement authenticity verification:

    SUSE security announcements are published via mailing lists and on Web
    sites. The authenticity and integrity of a SUSE security announcement is
    guaranteed by a cryptographic signature in each announcement. All SUSE
    security announcements are published with a valid signature.

    To verify the signature of the announcement, save it as text into a file
    and run the command

      gpg --verify <file>

    replacing <file> with the name of the file where you saved the
    announcement. The output for a valid signature looks like:

      gpg: Signature made <DATE> using RSA key ID 3D25D3D9
      gpg: Good signature from "SuSE Security Team <security@suse.de>"

    where <DATE> is replaced by the date the document was signed.

    If the security team's key is not contained in your key ring, you can
    import it from the first installation CD. To import the key, use the
    command

      gpg --import gpg-pubkey-3d25d3d9-36e12d04.asc

  - Package authenticity verification:

    SUSE update packages are available on many mirror FTP servers all over the
    world. While this service is considered valuable and important to the free
    and open source software community, the authenticity and the integrity of
    a package needs to be verified to ensure that it has not been tampered
    with.

    There are two verification methods that can be used independently from
    each other to prove the authenticity of a downloaded file or RPM package:

    1) Using the internal gpg signatures of the rpm package
    2) MD5 checksums as provided in this announcement

    1) The internal rpm package signatures provide an easy way to verify the
       authenticity of an RPM package. Use the command

        rpm -v --checksig <file.rpm>

       to verify the signature of the package, replacing <file.rpm> with the
       filename of the RPM package downloaded. The package is unmodified if it
       contains a valid signature from build@suse.de with the key ID 9C800ACA.

       This key is automatically imported into the RPM database (on
       RPMv4-based distributions) and the gpg key ring of 'root' during
       installation. You can also find it on the first installation CD and at
       the end of this announcement.

    2) If you need an alternative means of verification, use the md5sum
       command to verify the authenticity of the packages. Execute the command

         md5sum <filename.rpm>

       after you downloaded the file from a SUSE FTP server or its mirrors.
       Then compare the resulting md5sum with the one that is listed in the
       SUSE security announcement. Because the announcement containing the
       checksums is cryptographically signed (by security@suse.de), the
       checksums show proof of the authenticity of the package if the
       signature of the announcement is valid. Note that the md5 sums
       published in the SUSE Security Announcements are valid for the
       respective packages only. Newer versions of these packages cannot be
       verified.

  - SUSE runs two security mailing lists to which any interested party may
    subscribe:

    opensuse-security@opensuse.org
        -   General Linux and SUSE security discussion.
            All SUSE security announcements are sent to this list.
            To subscribe, send an e-mail to
                <opensuse-security+subscribe@opensuse.org>.

    opensuse-security-announce@opensuse.org
        -   SUSE's announce-only mailing list.
            Only SUSE's security announcements are sent to this list.
            To subscribe, send an e-mail to
                <opensuse-security-announce+subscribe@opensuse.org>.

    =====================================================================
    SUSE's security contact is <security@suse.com> or <security@suse.de>.
    The <security@suse.de> public key is listed below.
