Description Vlastimil Babka (Caster) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-07-22 21:57:36 UTC
At least on my x86, the testcases found at $URL are crashing it similarly to Sun JDK (bug 178851, I think IBM licenses most of their code anyway).

I'm bumping to which I found to be released and that has it apparently fixed (safe java exception about bad ICC data instead of crash). But we'll need to wait for update of the 1.5 slot.

Arches please stabilize:

Sorry to amd64 which just stabilized before I found out about the new one :)
You can get the distfiles via ssh from d.g.o/~caster/tmp to avoid hassle with IBM accounts.

 To be honest: This type of download restriction is a fucking piece of shit and
I just hate it.  If I ever meet the responsible person I will hit him/her hard
in the face.

x86 stable

OK, so IBM released which is just security fixes and apparently fixes this one vulnerability.

Added to tree, arches please stabilize:

Note that jre SLOT 1.5 was not stable yet, but 1) was there in ~arch for two months and is only security fix (according to changelog) and 2) jre is just a subset of jdk which is stable, so I think there's no need to wait 30 days.
You can get the distfiles again per comment 1. (i'm still uploading tho so you might have to wait if you are too fast :)

Which was last arch.
Comment 12 Matt Drew (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-09-09 22:23:48 UTC
I'll vote yes - the linked URL is talking about exploitable buffer overflows.
Comment 13 Pierre-Yves Rofes (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-09-12 08:37:10 UTC
voting yes too, maybe combined with the sun jdk/jre draft.
