Description

Issue Overview:

Multiple flaws were discovered in the CORBA, Libraries, RMI, Serialization, and 2D components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to completely bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2015-4835 __, CVE-2015-4881 __, CVE-2015-4843 __, CVE-2015-4883 __, CVE-2015-4860 __, CVE-2015-4805 __, CVE-2015-4844 __)

Multiple denial of service flaws were found in the JAXP component in OpenJDK. A specially crafted XML file could cause a Java application using JAXP to consume an excessive amount of CPU and memory when parsed. (CVE-2015-4803 __, CVE-2015-4893 __, CVE-2015-4911 __)

It was discovered that the Security component in OpenJDK failed to properly check if a certificate satisfied all defined constraints. In certain cases, this could cause a Java application to accept an X.509 certificate which does not meet requirements of the defined policy. (CVE-2015-4872 __)

Multiple flaws were found in the Libraries, 2D, CORBA, JAXP, JGSS, and RMI components in OpenJDK.
