Description Tomas Hoger 2017-04-18 12:12:54 UTC
It was discovered that the SMTP client implementation in the Networking component of OpenJDK failed to correctly handle sender and recipient addresses containing newline characters.  A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to manipulate an SMTP connection opened by a Java application if it could make it send an email to or from a specially crafted address.
