Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2016-5546
DESCRIPTION:
An unspecified vulnerability in Oracle Java SE Java SE Embedded and Jrockit related to the Libraries component has no confidentiality impact, high integrity impact, and no availability impact.
CVSS Base Score: 7.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/120869 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:H/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2016-5547
DESCRIPTION:
An unspecified vulnerability in Oracle Java SE Java SE Embedded and Jrockit related to the Libraries component could allow a remote attacker to cause a denial of service resulting in a low availability impact using unknown attack vectors.
CVSS Base Score: 5.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/120871 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)

CVEID: CVE-2016-5548
DESCRIPTION:
An unspecified vulnerability in Oracle Java SE and Java SE Embedded related to the Libraries component could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information resulting in a high confidentiality impact using unknown attack vectors.
CVSS Base Score: 6.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/120864 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2016-5549
DESCRIPTION:
An unspecified vulnerability in Oracle Java SE and Java SE Embedded related to the Libraries component could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information resulting in a high confidentiality impact using unknown attack vectors.
CVSS Base Score: 6.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/120863 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2016-2183
DESCRIPTION:
OpenSSL could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by an error in the DES/3DES cipher, used as a part of the SSL/TLS protocol. By capturing large amounts of encrypted traffic between the SSL/TLS server and the client, a remote attacker able to conduct a man-in-the-middle attack could exploit this vulnerability to recover the plaintext data and obtain sensitive information. This vulnerability is known as the SWEET32 Birthday attack.

When running Java JVMTI execution analysis profiling, with Java 7 or 8 JDK (that is released after January 2017), you might get a Java VerifyError exception in JNI, which causes no execution analysis profiling data to display. To resolve this, apply the following fix: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg22001889
