Critical Nessus Plugin ID 62444


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


Multiple security issues were identified and fixed in OpenJDK (icedtea6) :

Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) component in Oracle Java SE 7 Update 6 and earlier, and 6 Update 34 and earlier, has no impact and remote attack vectors involving AWT and a security-in-depth issue that is not directly exploitable but which can be used to aggravate security vulnerabilities that can be directly exploited. NOTE: this identifier was assigned by the Oracle CNA, but CVE is not intended to cover defense-in-depth issues that are only exposed by the presence of other vulnerabilities (CVE-2012-0547).

Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) component in Oracle Java SE 7 Update 6 and earlier allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors related to Beans, a different vulnerability than CVE-2012-3136 (CVE-2012-1682).

The updated packages provides icedtea6-1.11.4 which is not vulnerable to these issues.
