CVE-2018-2641

Priority
Medium
Description
Vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded component of Oracle Java SE
(subcomponent: AWT). 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 network access
via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded. Successful
attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker and
while the vulnerability is in Java SE, Java SE Embedded, attacks may
significantly impact additional products. Successful attacks of this
vulnerability can result in unauthorized creation, deletion or modification
access to critical data or all 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 6.1 (Integrity impacts). CVSS Vector:
(CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:N/I:H/A:N).
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that a use-after-free vulnerability existed in the
AWT component of OpenJDK when loading the GTK library. An attacker
could possibly use this to execute arbitrary code and escape Java
sandbox restrictions.
