    openjdk-7 vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Java applets or applications could be made to expose sensitive
    information.
    
    Software Description:
    - openjdk-7: Open Source Java implementation
    
    Details:
    
    It was discovered that a memory disclosure issue existed in the OpenJDK
    Library subsystem. An attacker could use this to expose sensitive
    information and possibly bypass Java sandbox restrictions.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
      icedtea-7-jre-jamvm             7u211-2.6.17-0ubuntu0.1
      openjdk-7-jdk                   7u211-2.6.17-0ubuntu0.1
      openjdk-7-jre                   7u211-2.6.17-0ubuntu0.1
    
    This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
    fixes. After a standard system update you need to restart any Java
    applications or applets to make all the necessary changes.
