 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2014:141
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/

 Package : java-1.7.0-openjdk
 Date    : July 29, 2014
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated java-1.7.0-openjdk packages fix security vulnerabilities:
 
 It was discovered that the Hotspot component in OpenJDK did not
 properly verify bytecode from the class files. An untrusted Java
 application or applet could possibly use these flaws to bypass Java
 sandbox restrictions (CVE-2014-4216, CVE-2014-4219).
 
 A format string flaw was discovered in the Hotspot component event
 logger in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could
 use this flaw to crash the Java Virtual Machine or, potentially,
 execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the Java Virtual Machine
 (CVE-2014-2490).
 
 Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the
 Libraries component in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or
 applet could use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions
 (CVE-2014-4223, CVE-2014-4262, CVE-2014-2483).
 
 Multiple flaws were discovered in the JMX, Libraries, Security,
 and Serviceability components in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java
 application or applet could use these flaws to bypass certain Java
 sandbox restrictions (CVE-2014-4209, CVE-2014-4218, CVE-2014-4221,
 CVE-2014-4252, CVE-2014-4266).
 
 It was discovered that the RSA algorithm in the Security component
 in OpenJDK did not sufficiently perform blinding while performing
 operations that were using private keys. An attacker able to measure
 timing differences of those operations could possibly leak information
 about the used keys (CVE-2014-4244).
 
 The Diffie-Hellman (DH) key exchange algorithm implementation in the
 Security component in OpenJDK failed to validate public DH parameters
 properly. This could cause OpenJDK to accept and use weak parameters,
 allowing an attacker to recover the negotiated key (CVE-2014-4263).
 
 This update is based on IcedTea version 2.5.1, which fixes these
 issues, as well as several others.
