    openjdk-7 vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 12.10
    
    Summary:
    
    OpenJDK 7 could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it
    opened a specially crafted Java applet.
    
    Software Description:
    - openjdk-7: Open Source Java implementation
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that OpenJDK 7's security mechanism could be bypassed via
    Java applets. If a user were tricked into opening a malicious website, a
    remote attacker could exploit this to perform arbitrary code execution as
    the user invoking the program.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 12.10:
      icedtea-7-jre-cacao             7u9-2.3.4-0ubuntu1.12.10.1
      icedtea-7-jre-jamvm             7u9-2.3.4-0ubuntu1.12.10.1
      openjdk-7-jre                   7u9-2.3.4-0ubuntu1.12.10.1
      openjdk-7-jre-headless          7u9-2.3.4-0ubuntu1.12.10.1
      openjdk-7-jre-lib               7u9-2.3.4-0ubuntu1.12.10.1
      openjdk-7-jre-zero              7u9-2.3.4-0ubuntu1.12.10.1
    
    After a standard system update you need to restart your browser to make all
    the necessary changes.
