Date: Mon, 23 Feb 2015 09:56:39 +0100 From: Florian Weimer <fweimer@...hat.com> To: oss-security@...ts.openwall.com, Assign a CVE Identifier <cve-assign@...re.org>, VideoLAN Security Team <security@...eolan.org> Subject: CVE request: BD-J implementation in libbluray Missing Java Security Manager sandboxing mechanism / feature in the org.videolan.BDJLoader class Description: It was found that org.videolan.BDJLoader class implementation of libbluray, a library to access Blu-Ray disks for video playback, was missing Java Security Manager sandboxing. A specially-crafted Java application, utilizing the functionality of org.videolan.BDJLoader class, could use this missing feature to perform actions as the user running the Bluray player application. Note: libbluray upstream disables BD-J support by default, but some downstreams (like Fedora) pass --enable-bdjava at configure time, enabling it for their distribution. (This may affect proprietary BD-J implementations as well, I haven't investigated this due to lack of hardware and documentation.) -- Florian Weimer / Red Hat Product Security
