    files. A local attacker could possibly use this issue to overwrite
    arbitrary files. In the default installation of Ubuntu, this should be
    prevented by the Yama link restrictions. (CVE-2014-1876)
    
    A vulnerability was discovered in the OpenJDK JRE related to data
    integrity. (CVE-2014-2398)
