Vulnerability Details

CVEID:   CVE-2018-1000613
DESCRIPTION:   Legion of the Bouncy Castle Java Cryptography APIs could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by an unsafe reflection flaw in XMSS/XMSS^MT private key deserialization. By using specially-crafted private key, an attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the system.
CVSS Base score: 9.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See: https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/148041 for the current score.
