DESCRIPTION:
Red Hat has issued an update for icedtea-web. This fixes two
vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious people to
potentially compromise an application using the plugin.

1) An error due to the "getFirstInTableInstance()" function returning
an uninitialised pointer can be exploited to potentially execute
arbitrary code via a malicious web page.

2) A memory corruption error when handling strings without NUL
termination can be exploited to potentially execute arbitrary code
via a web page containing a malicious Java applet.

SOLUTION:
Updated packages are available via Red Hat Network.
