Description

The com.ibm.CORBA.iiop.ClientDelegate class in IBM SDK, Java Technology Edition 6 before SR16 FP25 (6.0.16.25), 6 R1 before SR8 FP25 (6.1.8.25), 7 before SR9 FP40 (7.0.9.40), 7 R1 before SR3 FP40 (7.1.3.40), and 8 before SR3 (8.0.3.0) uses the invoke method of the java.lang.reflect.Method class in an AccessController doPrivileged block, which allows remote attackers to call setSecurityManager and bypass a sandbox protection mechanism via vectors related to a Proxy object instance implementing the java.lang.reflect.InvocationHandler interface. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2013-3009.
