[SE-2012-01] Java 7 Update 11 confirmed to be vulnerable

[SE-2012-01] Java 7 Update 11 confirmed to be vulnerable

seclists.org | Jan 18th 2013 3:00 PM
Hello All, This post might be interesting for those concerned about the state of Oracle's Java SE security. We have successfully confirmed that a complete Java security sandbox bypass can be still gained under the recent version of Java 7 Update 11 [1] (JRE version 1.7.0_11-b21). MBeanInstantiator bug (or rather a lack of a fix for it [2][3]) turned out to be quite inspirational for us. However, instead of relying on this particular bug, we have decided to dig our own issues. As a result, two new security vulnerabilities (51 and 52) were spotted in a recent version of Java SE 7 code and they were reported to Oracle today [4] (along with a working Proof of Concept code). Thank you.
