--

Multiple flaws were discovered in the font layout engine in the 2D
component. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use
these flaws to trigger Java Virtual Machine memory corruption.
(CVE-2013-1569, CVE-2013-2383, CVE-2013-2384)

Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the Beans,
Libraries, JAXP, and RMI components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java
application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox
restrictions. (CVE-2013-1558, CVE-2013-2422, CVE-2013-1518, CVE-2013-1557)

The previous default value of the java.rmi.server.useCodebaseOnly property
permitted the RMI implementation to automatically load classes from
remotely specified locations. An attacker able to connect to an
application using RMI could use this flaw to make the application execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2013-1537)

Note: The fix for CVE-2013-1537 changes the default value of the property
to true, restricting class loading to the local CLASSPATH and locations
specified in the java.rmi.server.codebase property. Refer to Red Hat
Bugzilla bug 952387 for additional details.

The 2D component did not properly process certain images. An untrusted
Java application or applet could possibly use this flaw to trigger Java
Virtual Machine memory corruption. (CVE-2013-2420)

It was discovered that the Hotspot component did not properly handle
certain intrinsic frames, and did not correctly perform MethodHandle
lookups. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these flaws to
bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-2431, CVE-2013-2421)

It was discovered that JPEGImageReader and JPEGImageWriter in the ImageIO
component did not protect against modification of their state while
performing certain native code operations. An untrusted Java application
or applet could possibly use these flaws to trigger Java Virtual Machine
memory corruption. (CVE-2013-2429, CVE-2013-2430)

The JDBC driver manager could incorrectly call the toString() method in
JDBC drivers, and the ConcurrentHashMap class could incorrectly call the
defaultReadObject() method. An untrusted Java application or applet could
possibly use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions.
(CVE-2013-1488, CVE-2013-2426)

The sun.awt.datatransfer.ClassLoaderObjectInputStream class may
incorrectly invoke the system class loader. An untrusted Java application
or applet could possibly use this flaw to bypass certain Java sandbox
restrictions. (CVE-2013-0401)

Flaws were discovered in the Network component's InetAddress
serialization, and the 2D component's font handling. An untrusted Java
application or applet could possibly use these flaws to crash the Java
Virtual Machine. (CVE-2013-2417, CVE-2013-2419)

The MBeanInstantiator class implementation in the OpenJDK JMX component
did not properly check class access before creating new instances. An
untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to create
instances of non-public classes. (CVE-2013-2424)

It was discovered that JAX-WS could possibly create temporary files with
insecure permissions. A local attacker could use this flaw to access
temporary files created by an application using JAX-WS. (CVE-2013-2415)

This erratum also upgrades the OpenJDK package to IcedTea6 1.11.10.

All running instances of OpenJDK Java must be restarted for the update to
take effect.
