Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the JMX
and Libraries components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or
applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions.
(CVE-2013-1486 , CVE-2013-1484)

An improper permission check issue was discovered in the Libraries
component in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could
use this flaw to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions.
(CVE-2013-1485)

It was discovered that OpenJDK leaked timing information when
decrypting TLS/SSL protocol encrypted records when CBC-mode cipher
suites were used. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to
retrieve plain text from the encrypted packets by using a TLS/SSL
server as a padding oracle. (CVE-2013-0169)
