Description
Vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded product of Oracle Java SE
(component: JAXP). Supported versions that are affected are Java SE: 7u231,
8u221, 11.0.4 and 13; Java SE Embedded: 8u221. Difficult to exploit
vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via
multiple protocols to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded. 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 (in
Java SE 8), that load and run untrusted code (e.g., code that comes from
the internet) and rely on the Java sandbox for security. This vulnerability
can also be exploited by using APIs in the specified Component, e.g.,
through a web service which supplies data to the APIs. CVSS 3.0 Base Score
3.7 (Availability impacts). CVSS Vector:
(CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L).

It was discovered that the JAXP subsystem in OpenJDK did not properly
handle XPath expressions in some situations. An attacker could use
this to cause a denial of service (application crash).
