    CVSS Scores
    Base 10 / Temporal 7.4
    Description
    Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is a platform that supports the execution of programs that are developed using the Java programming language. The JRE platform also supports Java Applets, which can be loaded from Web pages.

    JRE and JDK are exposed to multiple vulnerabilities that affect various components. Oracle's Java Critical Patch Update for October 2014 contains 25 new security fixes across multiple Java SE products and sub-products.

    Affected Versions:
    Oracle Java JDK and JRE, versions 5.0u71 and earlier, 6u81 and earlier, 7u67 and earlier, 8u20 and earlier.

    Consequence
    Exploitation could allow an attacker to take complete control of an affected system.
    Solution
    The vendor released updates (Java SE JDK and JRE 8 Update 25, Java SE JDK and JRE 7 Update 71, Java SE JDK and JRE 6 Update 85, Java SE JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 75) to resolve these issues. Refer to vendor advisory Oracle Java SE CPU October 2014 and Oracle Doc ID 1931846.1 to obtain more details.

    Updates for Java 5 and Java 6 are no longer available to the public. Oracle offers updates to Java 5 and Java 6 only for customers who have purchased Java support or have Oracle products that require Java 5 and Java 6.

  • Oracle WebLogic Server Multiple Unspecified Vulnerabilities (CPUOCT2014)

    Severity
    Serious 3
    Qualys ID
    87268
    Vendor Reference
    Oracle WebLogic Server CPUOCT2014
    CVE Reference
    CVE-2014-0114, CVE-2014-6499, CVE-2014-6534
    CVSS Scores
    Base 7.5 / Temporal 5.9
    Description
    Oracle WebLogic Server (formerly known as BEA WebLogic Server) is an application server for building and deploying enterprise applications and services.

    Oracle WebLogic Server component in Oracle Fusion Middleware 10.0.2.0, 10.3.6.0, 12.1.1.0, 12.1.2.0 and 12.1.3.0 are exposed to multiple unspecified vulnerabilities that allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via vectors related to WLS Security. QID Detection Logic (Authenicated) :
    Operating System: Windows
    For affected 12.1.2 and later version
    The QID checks the "Oracle_Home" path with help of the registry key "HKLM\Software\Oracle". The QID verifies if the affected WebLogic version is insalled on the host and then checks if the corresponding patch is applied or not.

    For 10.3.6.0
    The QID checks if WebLogic v10.3.6.0 is installed by looking at the file <INSTALL DRIVE>\Oracle\Middleware\wlserver_10.3\.product.properties. The QID then checks if the corresponding patch is apploed or not.

    For 12.1.1.0
    The QID checks if WebLogic v12.1.1.0 is installed by looking at the file <INSTALL DRIVE>\Oracle\Middleware\wlserver_12.1\.product.properties. The QID then checks if the corresponding patch is apploed or not.

    QID Detection Logic (Unauthenicated) :
    The qid sends a "GET console/login/LoginForm.jsp" request to retrieve the WebLogic version installed.

    Consequence
    Successfully exploiting this vulnerability might allow remote attacker to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability of Oracle WebLogic Server.
    Solution
    The vendor has released patches for these issues. Refer to Oracle CPUOCT2014 for detailed information.
