 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2014:011
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : java-1.7.0-openjdk
 Date    : January 20, 2014
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
 java-1.7.0-openjdk:
 
 An input validation flaw was discovered in the font layout engine in
 the 2D component. A specially crafted font file could trigger Java
 Virtual Machine memory corruption when processed. An untrusted Java
 application or applet could possibly use this flaw to bypass Java
 sandbox restrictions (CVE-2013-5907).
 
 Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the
 CORBA, JNDI, and Libraries components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java
 application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox
 restrictions (CVE-2014-0428, CVE-2014-0422, CVE-2013-5893).
 
 Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the
 Serviceability, Security, CORBA, JAAS, JAXP, and Networking components
 in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use these
 flaws to bypass certain Java sandbox restrictions (CVE-2014-0373,
 CVE-2013-5878, CVE-2013-5910, CVE-2013-5896, CVE-2013-5884,
 CVE-2014-0416, CVE-2014-0376, CVE-2014-0368).
 
 It was discovered that the Beans component did not restrict processing
 of XML external entities. This flaw could cause a Java application
 using Beans to leak sensitive information, or affect application
 availability (CVE-2014-0423).
 
 It was discovered that the JSSE component could leak timing information
 during the TLS/SSL handshake. This could possibly lead to disclosure
 of information about the used encryption keys (CVE-2014-0411).
 
 The updated packages provides a solution for these security issues.
