ALAS-2013-163


Amazon Linux AMI Security Advisory: ALAS-2013-163
Advisory Release Date: 2014-09-15 22:35 Pacific
Severity: Important

Issue Overview:

An improper permission check issue was discovered in the JMX component in OpenJDK. An untrusted Java application or applet could use this flaw to bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2013-1486 )

It was discovered that OpenJDK leaked timing information when decrypting TLS/SSL protocol encrypted records when CBC-mode cipher suites were used. A remote attacker could possibly use this flaw to retrieve plain text from the encrypted packets by using a TLS/SSL server as a padding oracle. (CVE-2013-0169 )
