    ===========================================================
    
    A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:
    
    Ubuntu 9.10
    Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    
    This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
    Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.
    
    The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
    following package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 9.10:
      icedtea6-plugin                 6b18-1.8.7-0ubuntu1~9.10.1
      openjdk-6-jre                   6b18-1.8.7-0ubuntu1~9.10.1
      openjdk-6-jre-headless          6b18-1.8.7-0ubuntu1~9.10.1
    
    Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
      icedtea6-plugin                 6b18-1.8.7-0ubuntu1~10.04.2
      openjdk-6-jre                   6b18-1.8.7-0ubuntu1~10.04.2
      openjdk-6-jre-headless          6b18-1.8.7-0ubuntu1~10.04.2
    
    After a standard system update you need to restart any Java services,
    applications or applets to make all the necessary changes.
    
    Details follow:
    
    USN-1079-1 fixed vulnerabilities in OpenJDK 6 for non-armel (ARM)
    architectures. This update provides the corresponding updates for
    OpenJDK 6 for use with the armel (ARM) architectures.
    
    In order to build the armel (ARM) OpenJDK 6 update for Ubuntu 10.04
    LTS, it was necessary to rebuild binutils and gcj-4.4 from Ubuntu
    10.04 LTS updates.
    
    Original advisory details:
    
     It was discovered that untrusted Java applets could create domain
     name resolution cache entries, allowing an attacker to manipulate
     name resolution within the JVM. (CVE-2010-4448)
    
     It was discovered that the Java launcher did not did not properly
     setup the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable. A local attacker
     could exploit this to execute arbitrary code as the user invoking
     the program. (CVE-2010-4450)
    
     It was discovered that within the Swing library, forged timer events
     could allow bypass of SecurityManager checks. This could allow an
     attacker to access restricted resources. (CVE-2010-4465)
    
     It was discovered that certain bytecode combinations confused memory
     management within the HotSpot JVM. This could allow an attacker to
     cause a denial of service through an application crash or possibly
     inject code. (CVE-2010-4469)
    
     It was discovered that the way JAXP components were handled
     allowed them to be manipulated by untrusted applets. An attacker
     could use this to bypass XML processing restrictions and elevate
     privileges. (CVE-2010-4470)
    
     It was discovered that the Java2D subcomponent, when processing broken
     CFF fonts could leak system properties. (CVE-2010-4471)
    
     It was discovered that a flaw in the XML Digital Signature
     component could allow an attacker to cause untrusted code to
     replace the XML Digital Signature Transform or C14N algorithm
     implementations. (CVE-2010-4472)
    
     Konstantin Preißer and others discovered that specific double literals
     were improperly handled, allowing a remote attacker to cause a denial
     of service. (CVE-2010-4476)
    
     It was discovered that the JNLPClassLoader class when handling multiple
     signatures allowed remote attackers to gain privileges due to the
     assignment of an inappropriate security descriptor. (CVE-2011-0706)
