Security Bulletin: Asset and Service Mgmt Products - Potential security exposure when using JavaTM based applications due to vulnerabilities in Java Software Developer Kits. See Vulnerability Details for CVE IDs.
CVE ID: CVE-2011-3563, CVE-2011-5035, CVE-2012-0497, CVE-2012-0498, CVE-2012-0499, CVE-2012-0500, CVE-2012-0501, CVE-2012-0502, CVE-2012-0503, CVE-2012-0504, CVE-2012-0505, CVE-2012-0506, CVE-2012-0507
Customers who have Java based applications, such as Maximo Asset Management, Maximo Industry Solutions, Tivoli Asset Management for IT, Tivoli Service Request Manager, Change and Configuration Management Database, SmartCloud Control Desk, or Intelligent Building Management are potentially impacted by these vulnerabilities, which can cause performance or Denial of Service (DoS) issues. For additional information, please refer to Oracle’s February 2012 Critical Patch Update.
Refer to the developerWorks JavaTM Technology Security Alerts for the CVSS Base Score of each specific vulnerability.
The following Java versions are affected:
· IBM SDK Java Technology Edition Version 7
· IBM SDK Java Technology Edition Version 6
· IBM SDK Java Technology Edition Version 5
· IBM SDK Java Technology Edition Version 1.4.2
IBM supplied the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) from the IBM SDK Java Technology Edition Versions with the following:
Maximo Asset Management, Maximo Industry Solutions, Tivoli Asset Management for IT, Maximo Service Desk 6.x bundled Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Version 1.4.2
Maximo Asset Management, Maximo Industry Solutions, Tivoli Asset Management for IT, Tivoli Service Request Manager, and Tivoli Change and Configuration Management Database 7.1 and 7.2 bundled Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Version 5
Maximo Asset Management and Maximo Industry Solutions 7.5 bundled Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Version 6
SmartCloud Control Desk 7.5 bundled Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Version 6
Intelligent Building Management 1.1 bundled Java Runtime Environment (JRE) Version 6
Unsupported products, releases and versions are not tested for the presence of vulnerabilities. However, it is likely that earlier versions of affected releases are also affected by these vulnerabilities. IBM recommends that customers upgrade their products to a supported version.
Remediation is not provided for product versions that are no longer supported. IBM recommends that customers upgrade to the latest supported version of products in order to obtain remediation for the vulnerabilities.
Once you have determined the specific version of Java that you have installed, go to the developerWorks JavaTM Technology Security Alerts to access the download pages for the appropriate Service Release. On this page, the various Service Releases are separated by the specific Java version.
There are three areas where the Java SDK/JDK or JRE is used and must be updated:
1. Administrative Workstation – There is no active exploitation of these vulnerabilities within the Administrative Workstation that could reasonably be expected to lead to increased risk of substantial harm to an IBM customer.
2. Application Server – update the Websphere Application Server or Oracle Weblogic Server JDK. Refer to JDK Fixes for Websphere Application Server for additional information on updating and maintaining the JDK component within Websphere.
3. Browser Client - update the Java plug-in used by the browser on client systems. Updating the browser Java plug-in may impact some applets such as Maximo Asset Management Scheduler. Download from IBM FixCentral the latest Maximo Asset Management Scheduler Interim Fix for Version 7.1 or the latest Maximo Asset Management Fix Pack for Version 7.5, which includes the resolution for APAR IV11560.
Due to the threat posed by a successful attack, IBM strongly recommends that customers apply fixes as soon as possible.
Until you apply the fixes, it may be possible to reduce the risk of successful attack by restricting network protocols required by an attack. For attacks that require certain privileges or access to certain packages, removing the privileges or the ability to access the packages from unprivileged users may help reduce the risk of successful attack. Both approaches may break application functionality, so IBM strongly recommends that customers test changes on non-production systems. Neither approach should be considered a long-term solution as neither corrects the underlying problem.
