Description

LSAC(v2)
These packages provide the OpenJDK 7 Java Runtime Environment and the OpenJDK 7 Software Development Kit. Two improper permission check issues were discovered in the reflection API in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2012-3174, CVE-2013-0422) This erratum also upgrades the OpenJDK package to IcedTea7 2.3.4. Refer to the NEWS file, linked to in the References, for further information. All users of java-1.7.0-openjdk are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues. All running instances of OpenJDK Java must be restarted for the update to take effect.
