Description Marc Schoenefeld 2011-02-14 11:53:56 UTC
The JNLPClassLoader implementation incorrectly assigns ALL_PERMISSIONS to untrusted code in multiple signer scenarios. An attacker could misuse this to elevate privileges.

Comment 7 Tomas Hoger 2011-03-01 15:29:15 UTC
Fixed in IcedTea6 1.7.10, IcedTea6 1.8.7 and IcedTea6 1.9.7:

Comment 8 Marc Schoenefeld 2011-03-01 15:41:15 UTC

This issue did not affect the versions of the java-1.6.0-openjdk package as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.

Comment 9 Andrew John Hughes 2015-08-19 14:49:03 UTC
I'm not sure why this bug is still open, but the product is separate from the java-1.x.0-openjdk packages these days and is called "IcedTea-Web".
