Description Tomas Hoger 2013-09-13 15:49:50 UTC
An off-by-one heap-based buffer overflow was found in IcedTeaScriptableJavaObject::invoke function.  This problem was discovered in Oct 2012 and was assigned CVE-2012-4540.  For more detailed description, refer to bug 869040 comment 5.

The patch for this issue was applied to 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 IcedTea-Web branches, see bug 869040 comment 10.  However, the fix did not get applied to head.  Version 1.4 released in May 2013 did not include the fix and is affected by the issue.

A new CVE id CVE-2013-4349 was assigned for the missing fix in 1.4.
