delete access to some of Java SE, JRockit accessible data as well as
unauthorized read access to a subset of Java SE, JRockit accessible data.

the specified Component without using Untrusted Java Web Start applications
or Untrusted Java applets, such as through a web service. CVSS 3.0 Base

Ubuntu-Description
Moritz Bechler discovered that the RMI component of OpenJDK enabled
HTTP transport for RMI servers by default. A remote attacker could use
this to gain access to restricted services.
Notes
 sbeattie> Oracle note on this issue:
  Server side HTTP-tunneled RMI connections have been disabled
  by default in this release. This behavior can be reverted by
  setting the runtime property sun.rmi.server.disableIncomingHttp
  property to false. Note, this should not be confused with the
  sun.rmi.server.disableHttp property, which disables HTTP-tunneling
  on the client side and is false by default.
