Impact: Moderate
Public: 2010-10-12
Bugzilla: 642202: CVE-2010-3541 CVE-2010-3573 OpenJDK HttpURLConnection allows arbitrary request headers (6961084,6980004)
IAVA: 2011-A-0066

Details

The MITRE CVE dictionary describes this issue as:

Unspecified vulnerability in the Networking component in Oracle Java SE and Java for Business 6 Update 21, 5.0 Update 25, 1.4.2_27, and 1.3.1_28 allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors. NOTE: the previous information was obtained from the October 2010 CPU. Oracle has not commented on claims from a reliable downstream vendor that this is related to missing validation of request headers in the HttpURLConnection class when they are set by applets, which allows remote attackers to bypass the intended security policy.
