Synopsis
=======
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in the Oracle JRE/JDK,
allowing attackers to cause unspecified impact.

Background
=========
The Oracle Java Development Kit (JDK) (formerly known as Sun JDK) and
the Oracle Java Runtime Environment (JRE) (formerly known as Sun JRE)
provide the Oracle Java platform (formerly known as Sun Java Platform).

Affected packages
================
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  dev-java/sun-jre-bin        < 1.6.0.29              >= 1.6.0.29 *
  2  app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-java
                                 < 1.6.0.29              >= 1.6.0.29 *
  3  dev-java/sun-jdk            < 1.6.0.29              >= 1.6.0.29 *
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     NOTE: Packages marked with asterisks require manual intervention!
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
     3 affected packages
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

Description
==========
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in the Oracle Java
implementation. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below and
the associated Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory for details.

Impact
=====
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause
unspecified impact, possibly including remote execution of arbitrary
code.

Workaround
=========
There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
=========
All Oracle JDK 1.6 users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">Ův-java/sun-jdk-1.6.0.29"

All Oracle JRE 1.6 users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">Ův-java/sun-jre-bin-1.6.0.29"

All users of the precompiled 32-bit Oracle JRE 1.6 should upgrade to
the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge -a -1 -v ">=app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-java-1.6.0.29"

NOTE: As Oracle has revoked the DLJ license for its Java
implementation, the packages can no longer be updated automatically.
This limitation is not present on a non-fetch restricted implementation
such as dev-java/icedtea-bin.
