CVE-2018-2602

Priority
Medium
Description
Vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded component of Oracle Java SE
(subcomponent: I18n). Supported versions that are affected are Java SE:
6u171, 7u161, 8u152 and 9.0.1; Java SE Embedded: 8u151. Difficult to
exploit vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with logon to the
infrastructure where Java SE, Java SE Embedded executes 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 and unauthorized
ability to cause a partial denial of service (partial DOS) of Java SE, Java
SE Embedded. 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 4.5 (Confidentiality, Integrity and
Availability impacts). CVSS Vector:
(CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:H/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:L/A:L).
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that the Internationalization component of OpenJDK
did not restrict search paths when loading resource bundle classes. A
local attacker could use this to trick a user into running malicious
code.
