Flaw in Microsoft VM JDBC Classes Could Allow Code Execution
Flaw in Microsoft VM JDBC Classes Could Allow Code Execution

(September 23, 2002) – In a recent security bulletin, Microsoft Corp. advised Windows users to install a free patch to address three vulnerabilities in its virtual machine, the most serious of which could enable an attacker to gain complete control over a user’s system. All builds of the Microsoft VM up to and including build 5.0.3805 are affected by these vulnerabilities, which Microsoft assessed as being “critical” in client systems. Two of the vulnerabilities involve the Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) classes, which provide features that allow Java applications to connect to and use data from a wide variety of data sources, ranging from flat files to SQL Server databases. These flaws could enable an attacker to provide data that would have the effect of running code in the security context of the user, or might enable an attacker to load and execute any DLL on the user’s system. The third vulnerability involves a class that provides support for the use of XML by Java applications. Among the functions that could be misused through this vulnerability are ones that would enable an applet to take virtually any desired action on the user’s system. The flaws, and instructions for installing the patches, are detailed at www.microsoft.com/technet/security .

While the Administration spends energy chasing Oregon around for it's assisted suicide laws, Microsoft continues to be allowed to leave gapping holes in its operating system and other software. As the largest software developer in the world, these security problems leave us Users more and more vulnerable to electronic eavsdropping and terrorist attacks. Rather than spend money spying on innocent people, Ashcroft should be spending time in court forcing Microsoft to cleanup their security act.

Who could have guessed Microsoft would have a security breech in their JVM. I guess they need to match this flaw up with the thousands in their OS.

Can't they get anything right?
