Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenJDK, an implementation of the Oracle Java platform, resulting in denial of service, sandbox bypass, execution of arbitrary code, incorrect LDAP/GSS authentication, insecure use of cryptography or bypass of deserialisation restrictions.

Solution

Upgrade the openjdk-7 packages.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 7u171-2.6.13-1~deb8u1.
