Problem description

Updated java-1.7.0-openjdk packages fix security vulnerabilities:

Multiple flaws were discovered in the font layout engine in the 2D
component. An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly
use these flaws to trigger Java Virtual Machine memory corruption
(CVE-2013-1569, CVE-2013-2383, CVE-2013-2384).

Multiple improper permission check issues were discovered in the
Beans, Libraries, JAXP, and RMI components in OpenJDK. An untrusted
Java application or applet could use these flaws to bypass Java
sandbox restrictions (CVE-2013-1558, CVE-2013-2422, CVE-2013-2436,
CVE-2013-1518, CVE-2013-1557).

The previous default value of the java.rmi.server.useCodebaseOnly
property permitted the RMI implementation to automatically load
classes from remotely specified locations. An attacker able to
connect to an application using RMI could use this flaw to make
the application execute arbitrary code (CVE-2013-1537). Note: The
fix for CVE-2013-1537 changes the default value of the property to
true, restricting class loading to the local CLASSPATH and locations
specified in the java.rmi.server.codebase property. Refer to Red Hat
Bugzilla bug 952387 for additional details.

The 2D component did not properly process certain images. An untrusted
Java application or applet could possibly use this flaw to trigger
Java Virtual Machine memory corruption (CVE-2013-2420).

It was discovered that the Hotspot component did not properly handle
certain intrinsic frames, and did not correctly perform access checks
and MethodHandle lookups. An untrusted Java application or applet could
use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions (CVE-2013-2431,
CVE-2013-2421, CVE-2013-2423).

It was discovered that JPEGImageReader and JPEGImageWriter in the
ImageIO component did not protect against modification of their state
while performing certain native code operations. An untrusted Java
application or applet could possibly use these flaws to trigger Java
Virtual Machine memory corruption (CVE-2013-2429, CVE-2013-2430).

The JDBC driver manager could incorrectly call the toString() method
in JDBC drivers, and the ConcurrentHashMap class could incorrectly
call the defaultReadObject() method. An untrusted Java application
or applet could possibly use these flaws to bypass Java sandbox
restrictions (CVE-2013-1488, CVE-2013-2426).

The sun.awt.datatransfer.ClassLoaderObjectInputStream class may
incorrectly invoke the system class loader. An untrusted Java
application or applet could possibly use this flaw to bypass certain
Java sandbox restrictions (CVE-2013-0401).

Flaws were discovered in the Network component's InetAddress
serialization, and the 2D component's font handling. An untrusted
Java application or applet could possibly use these flaws to crash
the Java Virtual Machine (CVE-2013-2417, CVE-2013-2419).

The MBeanInstantiator class implementation in the OpenJDK JMX component
did not properly check class access before creating new instances. An
untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to create
instances of non-public classes (CVE-2013-2424).

It was discovered that JAX-WS could possibly create temporary files
with insecure permissions. A local attacker could use this flaw
to access temporary files created by an application using JAX-WS
(CVE-2013-2415).
