Security Bulletin

Summary

There are multiple vulnerabilities in IBM Runtime Environment Java Technology
Edition, Versions 1.6 and 1.7 that is used by IBM SPSS Statistics. These 
issues were disclosed as part of the IBM Java SDK updates in October 2015 and
includes the vulnerability commonly referred to as SLOTH.

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2015-4872

DESCRIPTION: An unspecified vulnerability in Oracle Java SE and JRockit 
related to the Security component has no confidentiality impact, partial 
integrity impact, and no availability impact.

CVSS Base Score: 5

CVSS Temporal Score: See 
https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/107361 for the current 
score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2015-4734

DESCRIPTION: An unspecified vulnerability in Oracle Java SE related to the 
JGSS component could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information.

CVSS Base Score: 5

CVSS Temporal Score: See 
https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/107356 for the current 
score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2015-5006

DESCRIPTION: IBM Java Security Components could allow an attacker with 
physical access to the system to obtain sensitive information from the 
Kerberos Credential Cache.

CVSS Base Score: 4.6

CVSS Temporal Score: See 
https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/106309 for the current 
score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:P/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2015-7575

DESCRIPTION: The TLS protocol could allow weaker than expected security caused
by a collision attack when using the MD5 hash function for signing a 
ServerKeyExchange message during a TLS handshake. An attacker could exploit 
this vulnerability using man-in-the-middle techniques to impersonate a TLS 
server and obtain credentials. This vulnerability is commonly referred to as 
SLOTH.

CVSS Base Score: 7.1

CVSS Temporal Score: See 
https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/109415 for the current 
score

CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined

CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/UI:U/C:H/I:L/A:N)

Workarounds and Mitigations

For CVE-2015-7575:

Users of Java 7 (SPSS Statistics 23) and later can address the issue by 
updating the /jre/lib/security/java.security file as follows (both steps are 
required):

Add MD5 to the jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms property - e.g. 
jdk.certpath.disabledAlgorithms=MD2, RSA keySize < 1024, MD5

Add MD5withRSA to the jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms property - e.g. 
jdk.tls.disabledAlgorithms=SSLv3, RC4, DH keySize < 768, MD5withRSA

Java 6 (SPSS Statistics 19 thru 22) requires code changes in the JSSE 
component in addition to the java.security file modifications, so upgrading 
the JDK is the only solution.
