Description

It was discovered that the DCG implementation in the RMI component of
OpenJDK failed to correctly handle references. A remote attacker could
possibly use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
RMI registry or a Java RMI application (CVE-2017-10102).

Multiple flaws were discovered in the RMI, JAXP, ImageIO, Libraries,
AWT, Hotspot, and Security components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java
application or applet could use these flaws to completely bypass Java
sandbox restrictions (CVE-2017-10107, CVE-2017-10096, CVE-2017-10101,
CVE-2017-10089, CVE-2017-10090, CVE-2017-10087, CVE-2017-10111,
CVE-2017-10110, CVE-2017-10074, CVE-2017-10067).

It was discovered that the LDAPCertStore class in the Security component
of OpenJDK followed LDAP referrals to arbitrary URLs. A specially
crafted LDAP referral URL could cause LDAPCertStore to communicate with
non-LDAP servers (CVE-2017-10116).

It was discovered that the Nashorn JavaScript engine in the Scripting
component of OpenJDK could allow scripts to access Java APIs even when
access to Java APIs was disabled. An untrusted JavaScript executed by
Nashorn could use this flaw to bypass intended restrictions
(CVE-2017-10078).

It was discovered that the Security component of OpenJDK could fail to
properly enforce restrictions defined for processing of X.509
certificate chains. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to
make Java accept certificate using one of the disabled algorithms
(CVE-2017-10198).

A covert timing channel flaw was found in the DSA implementation in the
JCE component of OpenJDK. A remote attacker able to make a Java
application generate DSA signatures on demand could possibly use this
flaw to extract certain information about the used key via a timing side
channel (CVE-2017-10115).

A covert timing channel flaw was found in the PKCS#8 implementation in
the JCE component of OpenJDK. A remote attacker able to make a Java
application repeatedly compare PKCS#8 key against an attacker controlled
value could possibly use this flaw to determine the key via a timing
side channel (CVE-2017-10135).

It was discovered that the BasicAttribute and CodeSource classes in
OpenJDK did not limit the amount of memory allocated when creating
object instances from a serialized form. A specially crafted serialized
input stream could cause Java to consume an excessive amount of memory
(CVE-2017-10108, CVE-2017-10109).

Multiple flaws were found in the Hotspot and Security components in
OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws
to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions (CVE-2017-10081,
CVE-2017-10193).

It was discovered that the JPEGImageReader implementation in the 2D
component of OpenJDK would, in certain cases, read all image data even
if it was not used later. A specially crafted image could cause a Java
application to temporarily use an excessive amount of CPU and memory
(CVE-2017-10053).
