Fedora 18 : java-1.7.0-openjdk- (2013-0853)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 63584


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes rhbz#895035 , which consists of a set of flaws that potentially allow arbitrary code execution (including remotely via applets).

It is strongly recommended that all Java users in Fedora immediately update to this release.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected java-1.7.0-openjdk package.
