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
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)
phenom# uname -a
FreeBSD phenom.cordula.ws 7.2-STABLE FreeBSD 7.2-STABLE #0: Tue Sep 8 10:43:26 CEST 2009 root at 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?
