Vulnerability identifier: #VU12420
Vulnerability risk: Low
Exploitation vector: Network
Exploit availability: No
Vendor: Apache Foundation
The vulnerability allows a remote unauthenticated attacker to bypass security restrictions to the target system.
The weakness exists in the Network Server component due to improper security restrictions. If the Derby Network Server is started without specifying a security manager, the Derby Network Server will install a default Java security manager that enforces a basic policy. A remote attacker can send a specially crafted packet and cause the system to boot a database for which the location and contents of the database are under the attacker's control.
Update to version 10.14.2.0.
