Red Hat: Security update for OpenJDK

These packages provide the OpenJDK 7 Java Runtime Environment and the OpenJDK 7 Software Development Kit. Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the JMX and Libraries components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. 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. 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.

Updated packages are available from ftp.redhat.com.

3. Description:

These packages provide the OpenJDK 7 Java Runtime Environment and the
OpenJDK 7 Software Development Kit.

Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the JMX and
Libraries components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet
could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (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)

This erratum also upgrades the OpenJDK package to IcedTea7 2.3.7. Refer to
the NEWS file, linked to in the References, for further information.

All users of java-1.7.0-openjdk are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which resolve these issues. All running instances of OpenJDK Java
must be restarted for the update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258
