Fedora 16 : java-1.7.0-openjdk-1.7.0.9-2.3.4.fc16 (2013-0888)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 63586
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

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.

Solution

Update the affected java-1.7.0-openjdk package.
