Debian: Security update for OpenJDK

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenJDK, an implementation of the Oracle Java platform. Multiple errors in the CORBA implementation could lead to breakouts of the Java sandbox Missing input sanitising in the font manager could lead to the execution of arbitrary code. The SynthLookAndFeel Swing class could be abused to break out of the Java sandbox.

Several temporary files were created insecurely, resulting in local information disclosure. Certificate revocation lists were incorrectly implemented. Validation errors in the bytecode verifier of the Hotspot VM could lead to breakouts of the Java sandbox.

Missing input sanitising in the XML parser could lead to denial of service through an infinite loop.

Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.
