Java CPU February 2013 Java Runtime Environment Deployment vulnerability (CVE-2012-1541)

Severity CVSS Published Added Modified
10 (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C) January 31, 2013 February 02, 2013 December 22, 2013

Description

Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) component in Oracle Java SE 7 through Update 11 and 6 through Update 38 allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors related to Deployment, a different vulnerability than other CVEs listed in the February 2013 CPU. NOTE: the previous information is from the February 2013 CPU. Oracle has not commented on claims from a third party that the issue is due to an interaction error in between the JRE plug-in for WebKit-based browsers and the Javascript engine, which allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by modifying DOM nodes that contain applet elements in a way that triggers an incorrect reference count and a use after free.
