Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

An improper permission check issue was discovered in the JMX component in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-1486)

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-1.6.0-openjdk' to update your system.
