Description James Le Cuirot gentoo-dev 2016-01-23 19:27:38 UTC
I'm going to bump icedtea and icedtea-bin now. icedtea doesn't get marked stable so the vulnerable versions will be cleared immediately.

They were mentioned in gnu_andrew's blog post in contexts relating to Java. I'm not sure how CVE-2015-{8126,8472} applies as libpng is used but not bundled. Regarding CVE-2015-7575, it says "further reduce use of MD5" which is presumably an attempt to mitigate the issue.
