Security Bulletin: InfoSphere Streams Applications Using Custom Java Operators May Be Affected by Vulnerabilities in the IBM® SDK, Java™ Technology Edition

Security Bulletin


Summary

The IBM® Developers Kit, Java™ Technology Edition that is shipped with InfoSphere Streams has security vulnerabilities which can potentially impact InfoSphere Streams applications. None of these vulnerabilities exist in InfoSphere Streams code but might impact customers who implement custom Java operators. Customers are advised to evaluate their custom operators and take appropriate action if security exposures are found.

Vulnerability Details

IBM InfoSphere Streams bundles the IBM Developers Kit, Java Technology Edition (IBM Developer Kit, Java). The IBM Developer Kit, Java is based on the Oracle® Java Developer Kit(TM) for which Oracle has released the October 2013 critical patch updates (CPU). The October 2013 release contains security vulnerability fixes and the IBM Java SDK has been updated to incorporate those updates and also other security updates from IBM.
None of these security vulnerabilities exist in InfoSphere Streams code however custom Java operators created and used as part of a Streams application could contain one or more of these vulnerabilities. InfoSphere Streams Development recommends that customers evaluate their Java(TM) code to determine if it contains vulnerabilities. Refer to the References section and the following advisories list for more information.
See the Remediation / Fixes section for steps to take to address any vulnerabilities or vulnerability concerns.

The list below covers all applicable CVEs published by Oracle as part of their October 2013 Java SE Critical Patch Update. For more information please refer to Oracle's October 2013 Java SE CPU Advisory , Oracle's October 2013 Java Risk Matix and the links provided in the advisory list below.
