CVE-2010-3554

Published: 19 October 2010

Unspecified vulnerability in the CORBA 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 "permissions granted to certain system objects."

From the Ubuntu security team

It was discovered that multiple flaws in the CORBA reflection implementation could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code by misusing permissions granted to certain system objects.
