Debian DLA-704-1 : openjdk-7 security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 94587

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenJDK, an implementation of the Oracle Java platform, resulting in information disclosure, denial of service and arbitrary code execution.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 7u111-2.6.7-2~deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openjdk-7 packages.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
