CVE-2018-2677

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. Easily exploitable
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 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 4.3 (Availability impacts). CVSS Vector:
(CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L).
Ubuntu-Description
It was discovered that the AWT component of OpenJDK did not properly
restrict the amount of memory allocated when deserializing some
objects. An attacker could use this to cause a denial of service
(excessive memory consumption).
