(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)

Solution

Run 'yum update java-1.7.0-openjdk' to update your system.
