Description Tomas Hoger 2014-01-10 09:50:53 EST
It was discovered that the HotSpot JVM in OpenJDK did not properly handle methods in MethodHandles.  An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use this flaw to bypass Java sandbox restrictions.
Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2014-01-14 16:13:17 EST
Public now via Oracle CPU January 2014.  Fixed in Oracle JDK 7u51.
