    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenJDK, an
    implementation of the Oracle Java platform, resulting in the execution
    of arbitrary code, breakouts of the Java sandbox, information disclosure,
    or denial of service.
    
    The jessie update in DSA 3381 was built incorrectly, we apologise for
    the inconvenience. In addition the version number in jessie-security
    was lower than in wheezy-security which could result in upgrade problems
    during distribution updates. This has been fixed in 7u85-2.6.1-6~deb8u1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your openjdk-7 packages.
