Description Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen gentoo-dev 2007-05-19 22:31:40 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #178575 +++

As per summary, with the disclosure of OpenJDK sources we can confirm that the libpng copy on it is not patched to fix the vulnerability in summary (CVE-2006-5793), which makes its splashscreen support vulnerable to that issue.

app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-java-1.6* is not stable

Eventhough it's not stable it should still be fixed but we won't release a GLSA about it.
