|CVSS SCORE||6.8, (AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)|
The specific flaw exists within the implementation of the setVolatile method in the MethodHandles class. Due to unsafe handling of reflection of privileged classes inside the MethodHandles class, it is possible for untrusted code to gain access to privileged methods and properties. An attacker can leverage this vulnerability to execute code under the context of the current process.
Oracle has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
