A vulnerability, which was classified as very critical, has been found in Oracle Java up to 7 Update 11 (Programming Language Software). This issue affects some unknown processing of the file awt_parseImage.c of the component AWT. The manipulation with an unknown input leads to a memory corruption vulnerability. Using CWE to declare the problem leads to CWE-119. Impacted is confidentiality, integrity, and availability. The summary by CVE is:

Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) component in Oracle Java SE 7 through Update 11, 6 through Update 38, 5.0 through Update 38, and 1.4.2_40 and earlier, and OpenJDK 6 and 7, allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via vectors related to AWT. NOTE: the previous information is from the February 2013 CPU. Oracle has not commented on claims from another vendor that this issue is related to "insufficient validation of raster parameters" in awt_parseImage.c, which triggers memory corruption.

The weakness was disclosed 02/01/2013 with Sun Microsystems Inc. as Java CPU Feb 2013 as not defined advisory (Website). The advisory is shared at oracle.com. The identification of this vulnerability is CVE-2013-1480 since 01/30/2013. The exploitation is known to be easy. The attack may be initiated remotely. No form of authentication is needed for a successful exploitation. Technical details are known, but no exploit is available. The price for an exploit might be around USD $5k-$25k at the moment (estimation calculated on 05/04/2021). It is expected to see the exploit prices for this product decreasing in the near future.
