Synopsis
========

Java Web Start JNLP files can be abused to evade sandbox restriction
and execute arbitrary code.

Background
==========

Sun provides implementations of Java Development Kits (JDK) and Java
Runtime Environments (JRE). These implementations provide the Java Web
Start technology that can be used for easy client-side deployment of
Java applications.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-java/sun-jdk < 1.4.2.07 >= 1.4.2.07
< 1.4.2
2 dev-java/sun-jre-bin < 1.4.2.07 >= 1.4.2.07
< 1.4.2
-------------------------------------------------------------------
2 affected packages on all of their supported architectures.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Jouko Pynnonen discovered that Java Web Start contains a vulnerability
in the way it handles property tags in JNLP files.

Impact
======

By enticing a user to open a malicious JNLP file, a remote attacker
could pass command line arguments to the Java Virtual machine, which
can be used to bypass the Java "sandbox" and to execute arbitrary code
with the permissions of the user running the application.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Sun JDK users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-java/sun-jdk-1.4.2.07"

All Sun JRE users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=dev-java/sun-jre-bin-1.4.2.07"
