Description David Walser 2013-02-21 01:00:15 CET
RedHat has issued an advisory today (February 20):
https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-0273.html

Reproducible: 

Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 David Walser 2013-02-21 15:13:04 CET
Updated package uploaded for Mageia 2.

Advisory:
========================

Updated java-1.6.0-openjdk packages fix security vulnerabilities:

An improper permission check issue was discovered in the JMX component in
OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to
bypass Java sandbox restrictions (CVE-2013-1486).

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 updates IcedTea6 to version 1.11.8, which fixes these and other issues.
