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 Beans component in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. A hardening fix was applied to the AWT component in OpenJDK, removing functionality from the restricted SunToolkit class that was used in combination with other flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions.

Updated packages are available from ftp.redhat.com.
