Synopsis
========

The Oracle JDK and JRE are vulnerable to multiple unspecified
vulnerabilities.

Background
==========

The Oracle Java Development Kit (JDK) (formerly known as Sun JDK) and
the Oracle Java Runtime Environment (JRE) (formerly known as Sun JRE)
provide the Oracle Java platform (formerly known as Sun Java Platform).

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-java/sun-jre-bin < 1.6.0.20 >= 1.6.0.20
2 dev-java/sun-jdk < 1.6.0.20 >= 1.6.0.20
3 app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-java < 1.6.0.20 >= 1.6.0.20
-------------------------------------------------------------------
3 affected packages on all of their supported architectures.
-------------------------------------------------------------------

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

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in the Oracle Java
implementation. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below and
the associated Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory for details.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause
unspecified impact, possibly including remote execution of arbitrary
code.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All Oracle JRE 1.6.x users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-java/sun-jre-bin-1.6.0.20"

All Oracle JDK 1.6.x users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-java/sun-jdk-1.6.0.20"

All users of the precompiled 32bit Oracle JRE 1.6.x should upgrade to
the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose
">=app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-java-1.6.0.20"

All Oracle JRE 1.5.x, Oracle JDK 1.5.x, and precompiled 32bit Oracle
JRE 1.5.x users are strongly advised to unmerge Java 1.5:

# emerge --unmerge =app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-java-1.5*
# emerge --unmerge =dev-java/sun-jre-bin-1.5*
# emerge --unmerge =dev-java/sun-jdk-1.5*

Gentoo is ceasing support for the 1.5 generation of the Oracle Java
Platform in accordance with upstream. All 1.5 JRE versions are masked
and will be removed shortly. All 1.5 JDK versions are marked as
"build-only" and will be masked for removal shortly. Users are advised
to change their default user and system Java implementation to an
unaffected version. For example:

# java-config --set-system-vm sun-jdk-1.6

For more information, please consult the Gentoo Linux Java
documentation.
