Hello Gianluca,

Since a patch has been pushed upstream already, we need to wait for the fix to be backported in 7.

I'll take care to ask for the backport asap.

Thanks for reporting this,

No movement on this in the last week, so I posted this for backport:

Comment 4 Andrew John Hughes 2013-04-03 11:31:08 EDT
This was approved:


It's also now in IcedTea:


and should be included in the next security update.
Comment 5 Mario Torre 2013-04-22 04:57:57 EDT
Closing this bug now, since the back port has been done and released.
