openjdk-6 vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 11.10
- Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

Summary:

OpenJDK could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it opened a
specially crafted file.

Software Description:
- openjdk-6: Open Source Java implementation

Details:

It was discovered that OpenJDK did not properly validate certain types
of images. A remote attacker could exploit this to cause OpenJDK to crash.
(CVE-2013-0809)

It was discovered that OpenJDK did not properly check return values when
performing color conversion for images. If a user were tricked into
opening a crafted image with OpenJDK, such as with the Java plugin, a
remote attacker could cause OpenJDK to crash or execute arbitrary code
outside of the Java sandbox with the privileges of the user invoking the
program. (CVE-2013-1493)

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:
