Sun Java Development Kit (JDK) BMP image parser denial of service

sunjava-bmp-dos (34320) The risk level is classified as MediumMedium Risk

Description:

Sun Java Development Kit (JDK) is vulnerable to a denial of service attack when the BMP image parser attempts to open local files on a Linux or Unix system while parsing BMP images. By creating a specially-crafted Bitmap image, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service if the attacker could persuade the victim to view the malicious image.

*CVSS:

Base Score: 2.8

Consequences:

Denial of Service

Remedy:

Upgrade to the latest version of Sun JDK (1.5.0_07-b03 or 1.6.0_01-b06 or later), available from the Sun Microsystems Web site. See References.

For Gentoo Linux (Sun JDK/JRE):
Refer to GLSA 200705-23 for patch, upgrade, or suggested workaround information. See References.

For Gentoo Linux (emul-linux-x86-java):
Refer to GLSA 200706-08 for patch, upgrade, or suggested workaround information. See References.

For Gentoo Linux (BEA JRockit):
Refer to GLSA 200709-15 for patch, upgrade, or suggested workaround information. See References.

For other distributions:
Apply the appropriate update for your system. See References.
