CVE-2017-3539

Priority
Low
Description
Vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded component of Oracle Java SE
(subcomponent: Security). Supported versions that are affected are Java SE:
6u141, 7u131 and 8u121; Java SE Embedded: 8u121. Difficult to exploit
vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via
multiple protocols to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded. Successful
attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker.
Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized update,
insert or delete access to some of Java SE, Java SE Embedded accessible
data. Note: This vulnerability applies to Java deployments, typically in
clients running sandboxed Java Web Start applications or sandboxed Java
applets, that load and run untrusted code (e.g., code that comes from the
internet) and rely on the Java sandbox for security. This vulnerability
does not apply to Java deployments, typically in servers, that load and run
only trusted code (e.g., code installed by an administrator). CVSS 3.0 Base
Score 3.1 (Integrity impacts). CVSS Vector:
(CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:N/I:L/A:N).
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that OpenJDK allowed MD5 to be used as an algorithm
for JAR integrity verification. An attacker could possibly use this
to modify the contents of a JAR file without detection.

 sbeattie> see openjdk cryptography roadmap
  https://www.java.com/en/jre-jdk-cryptoroadmap.html
 sbeattie> update treats JAR files signed with MD5 as unsigned JARs by
  default. The jdk.jar.disabledAlgorithms security property can be
  modified to work around this; see the openjdk release notes in the
  References section for more details.
