Vulnerability Details:

CVE-2022-21592 is a vulnerability in Oracle's implementation of the Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) that allows attackers to impersonate a trusted Red Hat Certificate Authority signed certificate. This vulnerability impacts all products using JSSE, including Oracle JRockit, Oracle MySQL, and Oracle WebLogic.

The vulnerability is due to an issue in the way Java handles unrecognized SSL server certificates when using JSSE. If an attacker can trigger this issue, they will be able to spoof such a certificate and perform man-in-the-middle attacks by presenting themselves as the trusted CA.

This vulnerability was discovered on December 4th, 2012 by researchers at Cisco Systems’ Talos Intelligence Group and disclosed on February 2nd, 2013.
