For a complete list of vulnerabilities please refer to the link for “IBM Java SDK Security Bulletin" located in the “References” section for more information.

CVEID: CVE-2018-11212
DESCRIPTION: libjpeg is vulnerable to a denial of service, caused by divide-by-zero error in the alloc_sarray function in jmemmgr.c. By persuading a victim to open a specially-crafted file, a remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to cause the application to crash.
CVSS Base Score: 3.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/143429 for the current score.
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:L/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)

CVEID: CVE-2019-2426
DESCRIPTION: An unspecified vulnerability related to the Java SE Networking component could allow an unauthenticated attacker to obtain sensitive information resulting in a low confidentiality impact using unknown attack vectors.
CVSS Base Score: 3.7
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/155744 for the current score.
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2019-2449
DESCRIPTION: An unspecified vulnerability related to the Java SE Deployment component could allow an unauthenticated attacker to cause a denial of service resulting in a low availability impact using unknown attack vectors.
CVSS Base Score: 3.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/155766 for the current score.
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:N/I:N/A:L)

CVEID: CVE-2019-2422
DESCRIPTION: An unspecified vulnerability related to the Java SE Libraries component could allow an unauthenticated attacker to obtain sensitive information resulting in a low confidentiality impact using unknown attack vectors.
CVSS Base Score: 3.1
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/155741 for the current score.
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:H/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2018-12547
DESCRIPTION: Eclipse OpenJ9 is vulnerable to a buffer overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the jio_snprintf() and jio_vsnprintf() functions. By sending an overly long argument, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
CVSS Base Score: 9.8
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/157512 for more information.
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID: CVE-2018-12549
DESCRIPTION: Eclipse OpenJ9 could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by the failure to omit a null check on the receiver object of an Unsafe call when accelerating it. 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/157513 for more information.
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H)
