IBM JDK shipped in Rational Business Developer has security vulnerabilities.
CVE ID: CVE-2013-2412
An unspecified vulnerability allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality
via unknown vectors related to Serviceability.
This issue affects users of the JConsole monitoring tool, which is shipped
with the Java SDK. Products are unlikely to be directly affected, but
customers may be exposed to the vulnerability if they use JConsole.
CVSS Base Score: 5
CVSS Temporal Score: See ( http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/85059) for the
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)
CVE ID: CVE-2013-1571
The Javadoc tool is used to generate documentation for Java code. A
vulnerability in the Javadoc utility could result in Javadoc-generated HTML
pages being replaced by malicious pages.
These pages could be used to launch phishing, spoofing, or other social
engineering attacks against unsuspecting Web browser users by injecting
malicious content into a frame within a Javadoc-generated HTML page.
CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See (http://xforce.iss.net/xforce/xfdb/84715) for the
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)
AFFECTED PRODUCTS AND VERSIONS:
Version 8.5.1 and earlier of Rational Business Developer are affected.
The recommended solution is to apply the fix for Rational Business Developer
as soon as practical. Please see below the information on the fixes available.
Download and install V188.8.131.52 or later from the IBM Rational Business
Developer website to replace any affected version or release.
For versions no longer in support, IBM recommends upgrading to a fixed,
supported version/release of the product.
None known; replace your current affected version with V184.108.40.206 or later,
which contains a fix.
Do not use JConsole in the JDK shipped with RBD until you upgrade to V220.127.116.11
API documentation in HTML format generated by the Javadoc tool that contains a
right frame may be vulnerable to frame injection when hosted on a web server.
Sites hosting such pages should re-generate the API documentation using the
latest Javadoc tool and replace the current pages with the re-generated
Javadoc output. In cases where regenerating API documentation is not feasible,
Oracle provides a Java API Documentation Updater Tool that updates API
documentation "in place." The tool is available here.
