Security Bulletin

This security bulletin contains information about 2 vulnerabilities.

1) Uncontrolled memory allocation

EUVDB-ID: #VU12886

Risk: Low

CVSSv3.1:

CVE-ID: CVE-2018-10237

CWE-ID: CWE-789 - Uncontrolled Memory Allocation

Exploit availability: No

Description

The vulnerability allows a remote attacker to cause DoS condition on the target system.

The weakness exists due to unbounded memory allocation. A remote attacker can cause the service to crash and deserialize attacker-provided data, because the AtomicDoubleArray class (when serialized with Java serialization) and the CompoundOrdering class (when serialized with GWT serialization) perform eager allocation without appropriate checks on what a client has sent and whether the data size is reasonable.

Mitigation

Install update from vendor's website.
