Description

This update is fixing recent important security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE.

It was discovered that the Beans component in OpenJDK did not perform permission checks properly. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to use classes from restricted packages, allowing it to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2012-4681) Updated to latest IcedTea7 2.3 based on latest build of OpenJDK u6.
