Synopsis :

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes two vulnerabilities in the Oracle Java Runtime
Environment and the Oracle Java Software Development Kit. Further
information about these flaws can be found on the Oracle Security
Alert page, listed in the References section.

Unspecified vulnerability in Oracle Java 7 before Update 11 allows
remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and
availability via unknown vectors, a different vulnerability than
CVE-2013-0422.

Two improper permission check issues were discovered in the reflection
API in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use
these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions.
