CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2013:0602

These packages provide the OpenJDK 7 Java Runtime Environment and the OpenJDK 7 Software Development Kit.

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way the 2D component handled certain sample model instances. A specially-crafted sample model instance could cause Java Virtual Machine memory corruption and, possibly, lead to arbitrary code execution with virtual machine privileges. (CVE-2013-0809)

It was discovered that the 2D component did not properly reject certain malformed images. Specially-crafted raster parameters could cause Java Virtual Machine memory corruption and, possibly, lead to arbitrary code execution with virtual machine privileges. (CVE-2013-1493)

Note: If the web browser plug-in provided by the icedtea-web package was installed, the issues exposed via Java applets could have been exploited without user interaction if a user visited a malicious website.

This erratum also upgrades the OpenJDK package to IcedTea7 2.3.8. Refer to the NEWS file, linked to in the References, for further information.

All users of java-1.7.0-openjdk are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues. All running instances of OpenJDK Java must be restarted for the update to take effect.
