Default Eclipse settings can cause potential vulnerability



Due to default Eclipse settings, a crafted dll named "unixfile_1_0_0.DLL" and contained by the Eclipse project, is automatically loaded when the project is opened and can trigger an attack.


eclipse.filesystem.useNatives is set to True by default in the Eclipse settings.
To avoid any unexpected loading of a crafter DLL named "unixfile_1_0_0.DLL", we recommend changing the default value and to set eclipse.filesystem.useNatives to False, in the ini file or the command line.
Problem found with Eclipse 4.7.3 (Oxygen).
