Relevant CVE Information:

CVEID: CVE-2017-3272
DESCRIPTION:
An unspecified vulnerability in Oracle Java SE and Java SE Embedded related to the Libraries component has high confidentiality impact, high integrity impact, and high availability impact.
CVSS Base Score: 9.6
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/120862 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:C/C:H/I:H/A:H)

CVEID: CVE-2016-5548
DESCRIPTION:
An unspecified vulnerability in Oracle Java SE and Java SE Embedded related to the Libraries component could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information resulting in a high confidentiality impact using unknown attack vectors.
CVSS Base Score: 6.5
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/120864 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:H/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2017-3261
DESCRIPTION:
An unspecified vulnerability in Oracle Java SE and Java SE Embedded related to the Networking component could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information resulting in a low confidentiality impact using unknown attack vectors.
CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/120866 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2017-3231
DESCRIPTION:
An unspecified vulnerability in Oracle Java SE and Java SE Embedded related to the Networking component could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information resulting in a low confidentiality impact using unknown attack vectors.
CVSS Base Score: 4.3
CVSS Temporal Score: See https://exchange.xforce.ibmcloud.com/vulnerabilities/120865 for the current score
CVSS Environmental Score*: Undefined
CVSS Vector: (CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:R/S:U/C:L/I:N/A:N)

CVEID: CVE-2016-2183
DESCRIPTION:
OpenSSL could allow a remote attacker to obtain sensitive information, caused by an error in the DES/3DES cipher, used as a part of the SSL/TLS protocol. By capturing large amounts of encrypted traffic between the SSL/TLS server and the client, a remote attacker able to conduct a man-in-the-middle attack could exploit this vulnerability to recover the plaintext data and obtain sensitive information. This vulnerability is known as the SWEET32 Birthday attack.
