Description Marc Schoenefeld 2008-12-05 07:24:48 EST
Name: CVE-2008-5355
Status: Candidate
URL: http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2008-5355
Reference: SUNALERT:244989
Reference: URL:http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-26-244989-1

The "Java Update" feature for Java Runtime Environment (JRE) for Sun
JDK and JRE 6 Update 10 and earlier; JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 16 and
earlier; and SDK and JRE 1.4.2_18 and earlier does not verify the
signature of the JRE that is downloaded, which allows remote attackers
to execute arbitrary code via DNS man-in-the-middle attacks.

This is Windows-specific, so no need to keep the bug open.
