Description

LSAC(v2)
These packages provide the OpenJDK 7 Java Runtime Environment and the OpenJDK 7 Software Development Kit. Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the JMX and Libraries components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-1486, CVE-2013-1484) An improper permission check issue was discovered in the Libraries component in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-1485) It was discovered that OpenJDK leaked timing information when decrypting TLS/SSL protocol encrypted records when CBC-mode cipher suites were used. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to retrieve plain text from the encrypted packets by using a TLS/SSL server as a padding oracle. (CVE-2013-0169) This erratum also upgrades the OpenJDK package to IcedTea7 2.3.7. 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.
