As a result of a reported vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Sun Alert ID 57591, Symantec is issuing hotfixes for affected Symantec Security Gateway and Firewall products.
Symantec Gateway Security 5400 Series v2.0.1
Symantec Gateway Security 5400 Series v2.0
Symantec Enterprise Firewall v8.0
The JRE is used to manage the security gateway. No risk is posed to the security gateway itself, however, the client machines used to manage the gateway may be exposed through the console. Upon initial connection, the security gateway installs the JRE onto a system if the appropriate JRE is not already installed on the client. Currently, this is a version of the JRE that has been determined to be vulnerable. The hotfix updates the JRE included on the security gateway to the latest non-vulnerable JRE from Sun Microsystems, 1.4.2_06.
Symantec recommends customers update the management systems with the latest non-vulnerable JRE from Sun Microsystems. Customers who have already installed the latest non-vulnerable JRE from Sun Microsystems on management systems do not need to take further action at the management station.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) initiative has assigned Candidate CAN-2004-1029 to the original Sun JRE issue.
This is a candidate for inclusion in the CVE list (http://cve.mitre.org), which standardizes names for security problems.
Symantec has released a hotfix to address this issue. Symantec strongly recommends customers apply the appropriate hotfix for their affected product models/versions immediately to protect against this type of threat. Product specific hotfixes are available via the Symantec Enterprise Support site http://www.symantec.com/techsupp.
Symantec is not aware of any active attempts against or organizations impacted by this issue.
