New security release, see URL.
Andrew John Hughes already bumped the ebuilds in java-overlay. Thanks.
Icedtea and icetea-bin bumps in main tree are pending.
Added =dev-java/icedtea-22.214.171.124 to main tree.
icedtea-bin bumped to 126.96.36.199. Slot not stable so we are done?
Maintainers, please don't forget to drop vulnerable versions.
Closing noglsa for ~arch only.
Multiple vulnerabilities in Oracle Java 7 before Update 11 allow remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code by (1) using the public
getMBeanInstantiator method in the JmxMBeanServer class to obtain a
reference to a private MBeanInstantiator object, then retrieving arbitrary
Class references using the findClass method, and (2) using the Reflection
API with recursion in a way that bypasses a security check by the
java.lang.invoke.MethodHandles.Lookup.checkSecurityManager method due to the
inability of the sun.reflect.Reflection.getCallerClass method to skip frames
related to the new reflection API, as exploited in the wild in January 2013,
as demonstrated by Blackhole and Nuclear Pack, and a different vulnerability
than CVE-2012-4681 and CVE-2012-3174. NOTE: some parties have mapped the
recursive Reflection API issue to CVE-2012-3174, but CVE-2012-3174 is for a
different vulnerability whose details are not public as of 20130114.
CVE-2013-0422 covers both the JMX/MBean and Reflection API issues. NOTE: it
was originally reported that Java 6 was also vulnerable, but the reporter
has retracted this claim, stating that Java 6 is not exploitable because the
relevant code is called in a way that does not bypass security checks.
NOTE: as of 20130114, a reliable third party has claimed that the
findClass/MBeanInstantiator vector was not fixed in Oracle Java 7 Update 11.
If there is still a vulnerable condition, then a separate CVE identifier
might be created for the unfixed issue.
Unspecified vulnerability in Oracle Java 7 before Update 11 allows remote
attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown
vectors, a different vulnerability than CVE-2013-0422. NOTE: some parties
have mapped CVE-2012-3174 to an issue involving recursive use of the
Reflection API, but that issue is already covered as part of CVE-2013-0422.
This identifier is for a different vulnerability whose details are not
public as of 20130114.
