Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2012-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2012-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

It was discovered that the Beans component in OpenJDK 6 did not
properly prevent access to restricted classes. A remote attacker could
use this to create an untrusted Java applet or application that would
bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2012-1682)

It was discovered that functionality in the AWT component in OpenJDK 6
made it easier for a remote attacker, in conjunction with other
vulnerabilities, to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2012-0547).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
