3. Description:

The IBM 1.5.0 Java release includes the IBM Java 2 Runtime Environment and
the IBM Java 2 Software Development Kit.

Multiple vulnerabilities with unsigned applets were reported. A remote
attacker could misuse an unsigned applet to connect to localhost services
running on the host running the applet. (CVE-2008-3104)

A vulnerability in the XML processing API was found. A remote attacker who
caused malicious XML to be processed by an untrusted applet or application
was able to elevate permissions to access URLs on a remote host.
(CVE-2008-3106)

A buffer overflow vulnerability was found in the font processing code. This
allowed remote attackers to extend the permissions of an untrusted applet
or application, allowing it to read and/or write local files, as well as to
execute local applications accessible to the user running the untrusted
application. (CVE-2008-3108)

Several buffer overflow vulnerabilities in Java Web Start were reported.
These vulnerabilities allowed an untrusted Java Web Start application to
elevate its privileges, allowing it to read and/or write local files, as
well as to execute local applications accessible to the user running the
untrusted application. (CVE-2008-3111)

Two file processing vulnerabilities in Java Web Start were found. A remote
attacker, by means of an untrusted Java Web Start application, was able to
create or delete arbitrary files with the permissions of the user running
the untrusted application. (CVE-2008-3112, CVE-2008-3113)

A vulnerability in Java Web Start when processing untrusted applications
was reported. An attacker was able to acquire sensitive information, such
as the cache location. (CVE-2008-3114)

All users of java-1.5.0-ibm are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, that contain the IBM 1.5.0 SR8 Java release, which resolves
these issues.
