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

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.
