Scientific Linux Security Update : java-1.6.0-openjdk on SL6.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the 2D component handled
certain sample model instances. A specially-crafted sample model
instance could cause Java Virtual Machine memory corruption and,
possibly, lead to arbitrary code execution with virtual machine
privileges. (CVE-2013-0809)

It was discovered that the 2D component did not properly reject
certain malformed images. Specially-crafted raster parameters could
cause Java Virtual Machine memory corruption and, possibly, lead to
arbitrary code execution with virtual machine privileges.
(CVE-2013-1493)

Note: If your system has not yet been upgraded to Scientific Linux 6.4
and the web browser plug-in provided by the icedtea-web package was
installed, the issues exposed via Java applets could have been
exploited without user interaction if a user visited a malicious
website. Thus, this update has been rated as having critical security
impact as a one time exception. The icedtea-web package as provided
with Scientific Linux 6.4 uses OpenJDK 7 instead.

This erratum also upgrades the OpenJDK package to IcedTea6 1.11.9. All
running instances of OpenJDK Java must be restarted for the update to
take effect.
