Arch Linux Security Advisory ASA-201509-6
Date : 2015-09-14
CVE-ID : CVE-2015-5234 CVE-2015-5235
Package : icedtea-web
Type : multiple issues
Remote : Yes
Link : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CVE
The package icedtea-web before version 1.6.1-1 is vulnerable to multiple
authorization bypass vulnerabilities.
Upgrade to 1.6.1-1.
# pacman -Syu "icedtea-web>=1.6.1-1"
The problem has been fixed upstream in version 1.6.1.
- CVE-2015-5234 (unexpected permanent authorization of unsigned applets)
It was discovered that IcedTea-Web did not properly sanitize applet URLs
when storing applet trust settings. A malicious web page could use this
flaw to inject trust-settings configuration, and cause applets to be
executed without user approval.
- CVE-2015-5235 (applet origin spoofing)
It was discovered that IcedTea-Web did not properly determine an
applet's origin when asking the user if the applet should be run. A
malicious page could use this flaw to cause IcedTea-Web to execute the
applet without user approval, or confuse the user into approving applet
execution based on an incorrectly indicated applet origin.
A remote attacker is able to execute a malicious applet without user
approval via multiple vectors.
