Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

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 Beans
component in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could
use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2012-4681,
CVE-2012-1682, CVE-2012-3136)

A hardening fix was applied to the AWT component in OpenJDK, removing
functionality from the restricted SunToolkit class that was used in
combination with other flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions.
(CVE-2012-0547)

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.
