Here are links to said advisories.

RHEL5: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-1447.html
RHEL6: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-1451.html

They fixed it by updating to IcedTea 2.4.3.  I'm not sure why the package build ID is the previous 45 instead of the current 60 that's in rawhide (and Cauldron).

Comment 3 Oden Eriksson 2013-10-31 12:31:35 CET
I backported the cauldron java-1.7.0-openjdk for mga3, but there seems to be a problem somehow with icedtea-web, at least when testing at:

Comment 4 David Walser 2013-11-07 21:09:00 CET
Oden, that Java plugin test page doesn't seem to work for me even with the current version from updates.  Maybe you just need to try a different test page.  At least with the updates version, this page works for me (I haven't tried the updates_testing version):
Comment 5 David Walser 2013-11-08 18:25:30 CET
Updated packages uploaded for Mageia 2 and Mageia 3.


Updated java-1.7.0-openjdk packages fix security vulnerabilities:

Multiple input checking flaws were found in the 2D component native image
parsing code. A specially crafted image file could trigger a Java Virtual
Machine memory corruption and, possibly, lead to arbitrary code execution
with the privileges of the user running the Java Virtual Machine

The class loader did not properly check the package access for non-public
proxy classes. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the Java Virtual
Machine (CVE-2013-5830).

Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the 2D, CORBA,
JNDI, and Libraries components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or
applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions
(CVE-2013-5829, CVE-2013-5814, CVE-2013-5817, CVE-2013-5842, CVE-2013-5850,

Multiple input checking flaws were discovered in the JPEG image reading and
writing code in the 2D component. An untrusted Java application or applet
could use these flaws to corrupt the Java Virtual Machine memory and bypass
Java sandbox restrictions (CVE-2013-5809).

The FEATURE_SECURE_PROCESSING setting was not properly honored by the
javax.xml.transform package transformers. A remote attacker could use this
flaw to supply a crafted XML that would be processed without the intended
security restrictions (CVE-2013-5802).

Multiple errors were discovered in the way the JAXP and Security components
processes XML inputs. A remote attacker could create a crafted XML that
would cause a Java application to use an excessive amount of CPU and memory
when processed (CVE-2013-5825, CVE-2013-4002, CVE-2013-5823).

Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the Libraries,
Swing, JAX-WS, JAXP, JGSS, AWT, Beans, and Scripting components in OpenJDK.
An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass
certain Java sandbox restrictions (CVE-2013-3829, CVE-2013-5840,
CVE-2013-5774, CVE-2013-5783, CVE-2013-5820, CVE-2013-5851, CVE-2013-5800,
CVE-2013-5849, CVE-2013-5790, CVE-2013-5784).

It was discovered that the 2D component image library did not properly
check bounds when performing image conversions. An untrusted Java
application or applet could use this flaw to disclose portions of the Java
Virtual Machine memory (CVE-2013-5778).

Multiple input sanitization flaws were discovered in javadoc. When javadoc
documentation was generated from an untrusted Java source code and hosted
on a domain not controlled by the code author, these issues could make it
easier to perform cross-site scripting attacks (CVE-2013-5804,

Various OpenJDK classes that represent cryptographic keys could leak
private key information by including sensitive data in strings returned by
toString() methods. These flaws could possibly lead to an unexpected
exposure of sensitive key data (CVE-2013-5780).

The Java Heap Analysis Tool (jhat) failed to properly escape all data added
into the HTML pages it generated. Crafted content in the memory of a Java
program analyzed using jhat could possibly be used to conduct cross-site
scripting attacks (CVE-2013-5772).

The Kerberos implementation in OpenJDK did not properly parse KDC
responses. A malformed packet could cause a Java application using JGSS to
exit (CVE-2013-5803).

This updates IcedTea to version 2.4.3, which fixes these issues, as well as
several others.

In mageia 3 this one can be tested with icedtea-web in a browser, not mageia 2 though which uses 1.6.0 for that.

Comment 8 claire robinson 2013-11-13 11:48:21 CET
Testing complete mga2 32

Confirmed java-1.7.0-openjdk is being used..

$ ll /usr/bin/java
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 May 21 11:31 /usr/bin/java -> /etc/alternatives/java*

$ ll /etc/alternatives/java
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 44 Nov 13 08:54 /etc/alternatives/java -> /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.7.0-openjdk.i386/bin/java*

Remove old class files..
$ rm -f HelloWorldApp.class OddEven.class

Compile and test with the update java
$ javac HelloWorldApp.java
$ java HelloWorldApp
Hello World!

$ javac OddEven.java 
$ java OddEven

Returns odd or even as expected when a number is entered.

Comment 9 Bill Wilkinson 2013-11-13 15:02:59 CET
Tested mga3-64 with icedteaweb.

Javatester.org version responds with 
Java Version:1.7.0_45 from Oracle Corporation

ll /etc/alternatives/java returns:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 73 Nov 13 08:28 /etc/alternatives/java -> /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.7.0-openjdk-*

but java --version returns
java version "1.7.0_45"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (mageia- u45-b15)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.45-b08, mixed mode)

HelloWorld and OddEven work as expected, though I'm getting an error on OddEven stating:
Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/50-user.conf", line 9: reading configurations from ~/.fonts.conf is deprecated.

It doesn't affect execution, though.

I checked with luigi12 on IRC and _45 is the correct build, so OKing

Comment 10 claire robinson 2013-11-13 15:22:01 CET
The checks were just to ensure java 1.7.0 was being used rather than 1.6.0 with update-alternatives. java --version is better :)
Comment 11 Bill Wilkinson 2013-11-13 17:02:21 CET
Interestingly, I didn't get the fontconfig warning on mga3-32. Maybe something I've only got installed on the laptop?

Anyway, tested mga3-32 as in comment 9, all OK.

That's unrelated Bill, nothing to worry about. You'll see it when running X apps from cli.
