Security Bulletin: Balanced Warehouse C3000, C4000, & D5100, IBM Smart Analytics System 1050, 2050, 5600, 5710, 7600, 7700, & 7710, and PureData System for Operational Analytics A1791 Java API Documentation Frame Injection Vulnerability (CVE-2013-1571)

Flash (Alert)


Abstract

Java API Documentation contains a frame injection vulnerability.

Content

VULNERABILITY DETAILS:

CVEID: CVE-2013-1571


DESCRIPTION:

HTML documentation generated by the Javadoc tool contains a security vulnerability. The vulnerability allows an attacker to craft a malicious link to the documentation which injects arbitrary content into the main frame. The injected content appears to originate from the site hosting the documentation, but in fact it is hosted elsewhere, and might contain malicious links or content. This type of attack is known as "clickjacking".

The attack does not require authentication and might be exploited remotely if the HTML page is network available, but some degree of specialized knowledge and techniques are required. An exploit would not impact the confidentiality of information or the availability of the system, but data integrity could be compromised.

CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/84715 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)

REMEDIATION:

Users hosting publicly facing Java API Documentation are strongly encouraged use Oracle’s Java API Documentation Updater Tool, a repair-in-place tool meant to correct existing documentation.

The Documentation Updater Tool is available to all Java users on www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/.

In your Balanced Warehouse, IBM Smart Analytics System, or PureData System environment, the Javadocs are located under the DB2 install directory. Run the tool using the following command:

    java -jar JavaDocPatchTool.jar -R <DB2-install-directory>
    where <DB2-install-directory> represents the DB2 installation directory.


WORKAROUND(S):
None.
