Security Bulletin: Tivoli Storage Productivity Center - Oracle CPU June 2013

Flashes (Alerts)


Abstract

Multiple security vulnerabilities exist in the IBM Java SDK that is shipped with Tivoli Storage Productivity Center.

Content

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center is shipped with an IBM Java SDK that is based on the Oracle JDK. Oracle has released June 2013 critical patch updates (CPU) which contain security vulnerability fixes and the IBM Java SDK has been updated to incorporate those updates. Please note that developerWorks Java Technology Security Alerts includes a link to Oracle's June 18, 2013 Critical Patch Update.

VULNERABILITY DETAILS

CVE ID: CVE-2013-1571

DESCRIPTION: HTML documentation generated by the Javadoc tool contains a security vulnerability. The vulnerability allows an attacker to inject arbitrary content into the main frame. The injected content, which is hosted elsewhere, appears to originate from the site hosting the documentation and may contain malicious links or content. This type of attack is known as "clickjacking".

The attack does not require authentication and may be exploited remotely if the html page is network available. An exploit would not impact the confidentiality of information or the availability of the system, but data integrity could be compromised.

CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/84715 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)

The following advisories are included in the SDK but WebSphere Application Server is not vulnerable to them. These may apply if you have installed the IBM JRE as the system JRE, such as for use with the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center Java WebStart GUI. See the Reference section for more information on the Oracle advisories not applicable to WebSphere Application Server.

AFFECTED PRODUCTS AND VERSIONS: 
Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 5.1.0 through 5.1.1.1
Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 4.2.0 through 4.2.2 FP3
Tivoli Storage Productivity Center 4.1.x
System Storage Productivity Center

REMEDIATION:
The solution is to apply an appropriate Tivoli Storage Productivity Center fix pack fix for each named product and execute the manual steps listed below. The solution should be implemented as soon as practicable.

All of these steps are required to resolve the security vulnerabilities.

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V5

  1. Apply the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center fix pack as soon as practicable. (See Latest Downloads.)
  2. Affected TPC VersionAPARFixed TPC VersionAvailability
    5.1.xIC959215.1.1.2September 2013
  3. If you have downloaded and installed an IBM JRE from an older version of Tivoli Storage Productivity Center, you should download it again after applying the fix pack and reinstall the IBM JRE.

    Do not use the IBM JRE 1.6.0 or IBM SDK 1.6.0 links provided with the affected Tivoli Storage Productivity Center versions. Once you have upgraded your Tivoli Storage Productivity Center components to a level with the fix, you can use the links again as they will then allow you to download an updated version of IBM Java 6.

Tivoli Storage Productivity Center V4
  1. Apply the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center fix pack as soon as practicable. (See Latest Downloads.)
  2. Affected TPC VersionAPARFixed TPC VersionAvailability
    4.2.x
    4.1.x
    IC959224.2.2.170 (FP4)*

    *Requires additional WebSphere Application Server updates. See below.
    July 2013
  3. Apply WebSphere Application Server interim fix PM91296 to update the SDK for the Device Server.
    1. Download the interim fix PM91296. http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24035396
    2. Download Update Installer for WebSphere Application Server V6.1. The packages are at the end of the page. http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=180&uid=swg24012718
    3. Unzip the Update Installer for WebSphere Application server package and install it following the directions provided.
    4. Once Update Installer for WebSphere Application Server is installed, copy the *.pak file you downloaded for the interim fix to the maintenance directory in the Update Installer for WebSphere Application Server installation location.
    5. Stop the IBM Tivoli Storage Productivity Center device server process for WebSphere Application Server.
    6. Start Update Installer for WebSphere Application Server. When prompted for the location of WebSphere Application Server, enter the path to the Tivoli Storage Productivity Center location.
      Windows:
      <TPC_install_location>\device\apps\was
      e.g. C:\Program Files\IBM\TPC\device\apps\was
      AIX and Linux:
      <TPC_install_location>/device/apps/was
      e.g. /opt/IBM/TPC/device/apps/was
    7. Update Installer for WebSphere Application Server will handle the rest.
  4. Apply embedded WebSphere Application Server fix pack 6.1.0.47 to Tivoli Storage Productivity Center for Replication 4.2.2.4. See Upgrade of embedded WebSphere Application Server fix pack installation procedure for IBM Tivoli Productivity Center for Replication V4.2.2.4 for directions.
  5. If you have downloaded and installed an IBM JRE from Tivoli Storage Productivity Center, you should download it again after applying the fix pack and reinstall the IBM JRE.

    Do not use the IBM JRE 1.6.0 or IBM SDK 1.6.0 links provided with the affected Tivoli Storage Productivity Center versions. Once you have upgraded your Tivoli Storage Productivity Center components to a level with the fix, you can use the links again as they will then allow you to download an updated version of IBM Java 6.

Note:
If you are updating a System Storage Productivity Center (SSPC) appliance, use the IBM JRE downloaded from your upgraded Tivoli Storage Productivity Center installation, as referenced in step 3, to also update the IBM JRE on that system.
