[Sorry for resending: I didn't get any replies] Freenet (http://www.freenetproject.org/) on my FreeBSD/amd64 system complains about an old and vulnerable Java version:
Your installed version of Java is vulnerable to a severe remote exploit (remote code execution!). You must upgrade to at least Java 5 update 20 or Java 6 update 15 as soon as possible. Freenet has disabled any plugins handling XML for the time being, but this includes searching and chat so you should upgrade ASAP! See http://www.cert.fi/en/reports/2009/vulnerability2009085.html for details. Also, please do not use Thaw or Freetalk. The UPnP plugin is enabled, it might present a risk if you have bad guys on your LAN, but without it Freenet will not be able to port forward and will have severe problems. I'm running java/jdk16: phenom# java -version java version "1.6.0_03-p4" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_03-p4-root_08_sep_2009_17_05-b00) Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 1.6.0_03-p4-root_08_sep_2009_17_05-b00, mixed mode) On 7.2-STABLE: phenom# uname -a FreeBSD phenom.cordula.ws 7.2-STABLE FreeBSD 7.2-STABLE #0: Tue Sep 8 10:43:26 CEST 2009 r...@phenom.cordula.ws:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC amd64 Is that version of Java really vulnerable? If yes, why doesn't # portaudit -Fda report it as such, and could you please update the java/jdk16 port? Thanks, -cpghost. -- Cordula's Web. http://www.cordula.ws/ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
