Mageia Bugzilla – Bug 9775
java-1.7.0-openjdk new security issues fixed in IcedTea 2.3.9
Last modified: 2013-05-02 19:23:00 CEST
IcedTea 2.3.9 is in Fedora git:
The upstream announcement isn't out yet, but it should be soon, as upstream did announce new versions of IcedTea6 and icedtea-web today.
Oracle also has updated Java 7 and issued their advisory:
I really think we should update the buildver to match Fedora for this update, as the Java plugin reports this as its "Update" number, which will cause people to think our Java is out of date if we don't update it. The buildver is 19 now with this update.
Steps to Reproduce:
RedHat has issued an advisory for this today (April 17):
Upstream blog announcement:
Updated packages uploaded for Mageia 2 and Cauldron.
Note to QA: the Java plugin test should report this as Java 7 Update 19.
Updated java-1.7.0-openjdk packages fix security vulnerabilities:
Multiple flaws were discovered in the font layout engine in the 2D
component. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use these
flaws to trigger Java Virtual Machine memory corruption (CVE-2013-1569,
Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the Beans,
Libraries, JAXP, and RMI components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java
application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox
restrictions (CVE-2013-1558, CVE-2013-2422, CVE-2013-2436, CVE-2013-1518,
The previous default value of the java.rmi.server.useCodebaseOnly property
permitted the RMI implementation to automatically load classes from
remotely specified locations. An attacker able to connect to an application
using RMI could use this flaw to make the application execute arbitrary
Note: The fix for CVE-2013-1537 changes the default value of the property
to true, restricting class loading to the local CLASSPATH and locations
specified in the java.rmi.server.codebase property. Refer to Red Hat
Bugzilla bug 952387 for additional details.
The 2D component did not properly process certain images. An untrusted Java
application or applet could possibly use this flaw to trigger Java Virtual
Machine memory corruption (CVE-2013-2420).
It was discovered that the Hotspot component did not properly handle
certain intrinsic frames, and did not correctly perform access checks and
MethodHandle lookups. An untrusted Java application or applet could
use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions (CVE-2013-2431,
It was discovered that JPEGImageReader and JPEGImageWriter in the ImageIO
component did not protect against modification of their state while
performing certain native code operations. An untrusted Java application or
applet could possibly use these flaws to trigger Java Virtual Machine
memory corruption (CVE-2013-2429, CVE-2013-2430).
The JDBC driver manager could incorrectly call the toString() method in
JDBC drivers, and the ConcurrentHashMap class could incorrectly call the
defaultReadObject() method. An untrusted Java application or applet could
possibly use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions
The sun.awt.datatransfer.ClassLoaderObjectInputStream class may incorrectly
invoke the system class loader. An untrusted Java application or applet
could possibly use this flaw to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions
Flaws were discovered in the Network component's InetAddress serialization,
and the 2D component's font handling. An untrusted Java application or
applet could possibly use these flaws to crash the Java Virtual Machine
The MBeanInstantiator class implementation in the OpenJDK JMX component did
not properly check class access before creating new instances. An untrusted
Java application or applet could use this flaw to create instances of
non-public classes (CVE-2013-2424).
It was discovered that JAX-WS could possibly create temporary files with
insecure permissions. A local attacker could use this flaw to access
temporary files created by an application using JAX-WS (CVE-2013-2415).
Updated packages in core/updates_testing:
HelloWorld and OddEven work as expected.
