Demonstrative Examples (Details)
- In the following Java snippet, a JarFile object (representing a JAR
file that was potentially downloaded from an untrusted source) is created
without verifying the signature (if present). An alternate constructor that
accepts a boolean verify parameter should be used instead.
- CVE-2002-1796 : Does not properly verify signatures for "trusted" entities.
- CVE-2005-2181 : Insufficient verification allows spoofing.
- CVE-2005-2182 : Insufficient verification allows spoofing.
- CVE-2002-1706 : Accepts a configuration file without a Message Integrity Check (MIC) signature.
