Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in IcedTea allowing remote
attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability through
various vectors.


Background

IcedTea’s aim is to provide OpenJDK in a form suitable for easy
configuration, compilation and distribution with the primary goal of
allowing inclusion in GNU/Linux distributions.


Affected Packages

Package: dev-java/icedtea
Vulnerable: < 7.2.6.4
Unaffected: >= 7.2.6.4
Unaffected: >= 6.1.13.9 < 6.1.13.10
Unaffected: < 6
Architectures: All supported architectures

Package: dev-java/icedtea-bin
Vulnerable: < 7.2.6.4
Unaffected: >= 7.2.6.4
Unaffected: >= 6.1.13.9 < 6.1.13.10
Unaffected: < 6

Description

Various OpenJDK attack vectors in IcedTea, such as 2D, Corba, Hotspot,
Libraries, and JAXP, exist which allows remote attackers to affect the
confidentiality, integrity, and availability of vulnerable systems. This
includes the possibility of remote execution of arbitrary code,
information disclosure, or Denial of Service. Many of the
vulnerabilities can only be exploited through sandboxed Java Web Start
applications and java applets. Please reference the CVEs listed for
specific details.


Impact

Remote attackers may remotely execute arbitrary code, compromise
information, or cause Denial of Service.


Workaround

There is no known work around at this time.
