Christey" <coley@...-smtp.mitre.org>, Florian Weimer <fweimer@...hat.com>, Oracle Security Team <secalert_us@...cle.com> Subject: Re: CVE Request (minor) -- JVM: heap memory disclosure (possibly various JDKs) Jan/Kurt, The bug report appears to be describing a narrow class of vulnerability that could affect multiple codebases that implement Java Virtual Machines, not just Oracle's; if so, then a separate CVE would be needed for each REPORTED codebase, and CVE-2012-4416 is ONLY for bug id 7196857 for the Oracle-supported JVM. I wonder about the severity of the issue, but given the possibility that applications might access an array before a fill, and applications may depend on there being "empty" elements after initialization, this seems reasonable for a CVE. - Steve
