Description Andrej Nemec 2018-06-27 09:19:50 UTC
It was found that Apache Cassandra bound an unauthenticated JMX/RMI interface to all network interfaces. A remote attacker able to access the RMI, an API for the transport and remote execution of serialized Java, could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code as the user running Cassandra.

This issue is a regression of the previously disclosed CVE-2015-0225.
