* (U//FOUO) Researchers Find 17 Vulnerabilities In IBM Java: Researchers from Polish firm Security Explorations have identified a number of 17 vulnerabilities in Java. However, this time it isn't the Java developed by Oracle, but the one made by the IBM Corporation for AIX, Linux, z/OS and IBMi systems. ... Among a total of 17 security weaknesses found, there are issues that can lead to the complete compromise of a target IBM Java environment," Adam Gowdiak, CEO of Security Explorations, told Softpedia via email. "It should be noted, that none of the identified issues are duplicates of previously reported vulnerabilities in Oracle's Java SE. These are purely IBM Java specific weaknesses and exploitation vectors," he explained. The company has developed working proof-of-concept codes for all the identified issues, including 10 exploits that demonstrate a complete IBM J9 Java VM security sandbox bypass.
