Description
Vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded component of Oracle Java SE
(subcomponent: Networking). 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 as well as unauthorized read access to a subset 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 4.2 (Confidentiality and Integrity
impacts). CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:N).
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that OpenJDK improperly re-used cached NTLM
connections in some situations. A remote attacker could possibly
use this to cause a Java application to perform actions with the
credentials of a different user.
