Description James Le Cuirot gentoo-dev 2015-09-03 15:18:24 UTC
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- (ppc only)
dev-java/icedtea-bin- (not ppc)

Note that is required because the 2.6 series is currently broken on ppc.

So, if I understand well:



Please confirm.

amd64 stable
Comment 4 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2015-09-06 08:49:19 UTC
x86 stable
Comment 5 James Le Cuirot gentoo-dev 2015-09-06 13:45:56 UTC
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:
dev-java/icedtea-bin- went straight to stable for amd64 and x86 as only the core ppc tarball changed.
Comment 7 Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2015-09-08 07:27:27 UTC
ppc stable.

Maintainer(s), please cleanup.
Security, please add it to the existing request, or file a new one.
