Sorry for the lateness of this, I've never filed a security bug and was used to other people doing it for me! These are usually coupled with Oracle security releases but Oracle is no longer providing public updates for Java 7 (or 6) so this applies to IcedTea only. As such, it probably didn't get much publicity.
I have already bumped icedtea and icedtea-bin. icedtea doesn't get marked stable so the vulnerable versions of that are already cleared.
amd64, x86, and ppc arch teams, please stabilise:
dev-java/icedtea-bin-220.127.116.11 (ppc only)
dev-java/icedtea-bin-18.104.22.168 (not ppc)
Note that 22.214.171.124 is required because the 2.6 series is currently broken on ppc.
So, if I understand well:

Please hold off on ppc for a second, we've just realised why CACAO has been causing memory problems, it has a fixed 128MB heap. :|

Okay, I have now pushed a fix for that as -r1.
ppc team, please stabilise:
126.96.36.199-r1 went straight to stable for amd64 and x86 as only the core ppc tarball changed.
Maintainer(s), please cleanup.
Security, please add it to the existing request, or file a new one.
Thanks. Vulnerable versions now removed.
Arches and Maintainer(s), Thank you for your work.
Added to an existing GLSA Request.
