Arches please stabilize ibm-jdk-bin and ibm-jre-bin Distfiles as usual
via ssh d.g.o/~caster/tmp

Comment 4 Brent Baude (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-01-06 17:07:17 UTC
ppc64 done
Comment 5 Vlastimil Babka (Caster) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-01-14 09:11:39 UTC
Alerts appeared on ibm's $URL. Good that we done - it's fixed. For 1.4 and 1.6 there are not yet releases, as usual :/
Comment 6 Raphael Marichez (Falco) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-02-27 22:56:07 UTC
Due to impacts like DoS, privilege escalation and remote execution of arbitrary code, i set the bug to B3.

I would vote for a GLSA because of the numerous possible attack vectors and the very wide usage of Java.
Comment 7 Vlastimil Babka (Caster) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-03-29 23:12:02 UTC
ppc/ppc64 please stabilize ibm-jdk-bin- distfiles are being uploaded as usual (comment 1)
Comment 8 Brent Baude (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-03-30 16:00:37 UTC
ppc and ppc64 done
Comment 9 Vlastimil Babka (Caster) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-04-02 11:44:48 UTC
Arches please stabilize ibm-jdk-bin and ibm-jre-bin Distfiles as usual.
Comment 10 Joe Jezak (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-04-02 22:13:54 UTC
Marked ppc/ppc64 stable.
Comment 11 Joe Jezak (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-04-03 12:58:32 UTC
Removing ppc/ppc64 CC's (sorry for the bugspam).
Comment 12 Markus Meier gentoo-dev 2009-04-04 13:54:52 UTC
amd64/x86 stable, all arches done.
Comment 13 Vlastimil Babka (Caster) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-04-05 18:37:47 UTC
All's left is GLSA then, covering also bug 233652

> Marked ppc/ppc64 stable.

You forgot ibm-jre-bin, please do.
Comment 15 Vlastimil Babka (Caster) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-04-21 19:18:38 UTC
Also please note that the distfiles of 1.6 were meanwhile changed upstream and redigested (bug 265760) so take care not to redigest with the old ones - remove DISTDIR/ibm-java-*6.0-4.0* or use FEATURES=assume-digests etc...
Comment 16 Vlastimil Babka (Caster) (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-04-22 13:03:48 UTC
So, apparently was not fixed, IBM released a security update, which I bumped as They didn't care to rename the versions distfiles though. To prevent users from renaming distfiles of the fixed version (in order to coexist with the old version), the old ebuild was updated to expect old distfiles to be renamed to .old.tgz.

So, please stabilize, you need to download new distfiles from usual place and rename or replace the old distfiles. Take care also about comment 15. Sorry that their naming schemes suck.
Comment 17 Brent Baude (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-04-22 14:30:25 UTC
ppc and ppc64 done
Comment 18 Markus Meier gentoo-dev 2009-05-01 14:21:29 UTC
amd64/x86 stable, all arches done.
Comment 19 Stefan Behte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev Security 2009-08-08 22:45:56 UTC
Remote passive execution of arbitrary code is B2.
Added to already existing glsa.
