Security Bulletin: InfoSphere Streams is possibly affected by vulnerabilities in the IBM® SDK, Java™ Technology Edition (CVE-2014-0453 and CVE-2014-0460)

Security Bulletin


Summary

The IBM® Developers Kit, Java™ Technology Edition that is shipped with InfoSphere Streams has security vulnerabilities two of which could potentially affect InfoSphere Streams. Other vulnerabilities could be exposed by the use of custom Java code in InfoSphere Streams applications. Customers are advised to evaluate the identified vulnerabilities along with their Java code and take appropriate action if these security exposures affect their systems.

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 April 2014 critical patch updates (CPU). The April 2014 release contains security vulnerability fixes and the IBM Java SDK has been updated to incorporate those updates. See the Remediation/Fixes section below for information on upgrading your Streams installation(s) to protect against these vulnerabilities.
Vulnerabilities:
InfoSphere Streams can be configured to use RSA and the messaging toolkit can be configured to use the JNDI DNS service provider so is potentially vulnerable to the following security issues:

CVEID: CVE-2014-0453

Other issues:
The list below covers all applicable Java SE CVEs published by Oracle as part of their April 2014 Critical Patch Update along with one other vulnerability specific to the IBM Developer Kit, Java. InfoSphere Streams is not vulnerable to the issues below but Java custom code used with Streams could contain these vulnerable. Fixes for these advisories are included in the updated SDK. You will need to evaluate your Streams installation and your own Java code to determine if you are vulnerable and take appropriate action. For more information please refer to Oracle's April 2014 CPU Advisory, Oracle's April 2014 Java Risk Matrix and the X-Force database entries referenced below.

The list below includes CVE-2014-0878, which describes a vulnerability in the IBMSecureRandom implementation of the IBMJCE and IBMSecureRandom cryptographic providers. This flaw potentially allows an attacker to predict the output of the random number generator under certain circumstances. Please refer to the IBM Developer Kit, Java Security Bulletin for additional information.

Remediation/Fixes

Customers who are concerned about any of these vulnerabilities should apply the appropriate upgrade for their InfoSphere Streams installation as indicated below. Fix packs and patches are available on IBM Fix Central.

  • Version 3.2: Apply upgrade to 3.2.1 or later. If JAVA_HOME is defined see the note at the end of this section.
  • Version 3.1: Apply upgrade 3.1 fix pack 3 (3.1.0.3) or later. If JAVA_HOME is defined see the note at the end of this section.
  • Version 3.0: Apply patch 3.0.0.0-Patch_for_IBM_Java6_SR16. If JAVA_HOME is defined see the note at the end of this section.
  • Versions 1.0 and 2.0: Upgrade to the latest version of InfoSphere Streams for which a Java fix has been released.
  • For assistance performing an upgrade contact IBM Technical Support.
  • Customers who cannot upgrade and need to secure their installation should open a PMR with IBM Technical Support and request assistance securing their InfoSphere Streams system against the vulnerabilities identified in the October 2013 Oracle Java CPU. IBM will assist in securing your installation against the Java vulnerabilities identified in your InfoSphere Steams applications.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If JAVA_HOME is set ensure it points to the install location of the upgraded IBM Developer Kit, Java. Applications compiled with JAVA_HOME set to a different location will need to be recompiled after JAVA_HOME has been changed. For more information on compiling with JAVA_HOME set see the Notes section on the page at this URL: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSCRJU_3.2.1/com.ibm.swg.im.infosphere.streams.install-admin.doc/doc/ibminfospherestreams-install-prerequisites-java-supported-sdks.html?lang=en
