 Package : icedtea-web
 Date    : April 19, 2013
 Affected: Enterprise Server 5.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in
 icedtea-web:
 
 It was discovered that the IcedTea-Web plug-in incorrectly used
 the same class loader instance for applets with the same value of
 the codebase attribute, even when they originated from different
 domains. A malicious applet could use this flaw to gain information
 about and possibly manipulate applets from different domains currently
 running in the browser (CVE-2013-1926).
 
 The IcedTea-Web plug-in did not properly check the format of the
 downloaded Java Archive (JAR) files. This could cause the plug-in
 to execute code hidden in a file in a different format, possibly
 allowing attackers to execute code in the context of web sites
 that allow uploads of specific file types, known as a GIFAR attack
 (CVE-2013-1927).
 
 The updated packages have been upgraded to the 1.3.2 version which
 is not affected by these issues.
