Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in IcedTea allowing remote
attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability
through various vectors.

Background
==========

IcedTea’s aim is to provide OpenJDK in a form suitable for easy
configuration, compilation and distribution with the primary goal of
allowing inclusion in GNU/Linux distributions.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-java/icedtea-bin < 7.2.6.6-r1 *>= 3.0.1
>= 7.2.6.6-r1

Description
===========

Various OpenJDK attack vectors in IcedTea, such as 2D, Corba, Hotspot,
Libraries, and JAXP, exist which allows remote attackers to affect the
confidentiality, integrity, and availability of vulnerable systems.
Many of the vulnerabilities can only be exploited through sandboxed
Java Web Start applications and java applets. Please review the CVE
identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

Remote attackers may execute arbitrary code, compromise information, or
cause Denial of Service.

Workaround
==========

There is no known work around at this time.

Resolution
==========

Gentoo Security is no longer supporting dev-java/icedtea, as it has
been officially dropped from the stable tree.

Users of the IcedTea 3.x binary package should upgrade to the latest
version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-java/icedtea-bin-3.0.1"

Users of the IcedTea 7.x binary package should upgrade to the latest
version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-java/icedtea-7.2.6.6"
