Description Tomas Hoger 2012-12-06 15:39:21 UTC
Current IcedTea-Web versions are affected by GIFAR issue.  It is possible to combine GIF image with Java JAR into a single file, that is both valid GIF as well as valid JAR/ZIP file.  This issue can be used to execute Java applet in the context of the site that allows untrusted users to upload images in GIF format.

This problem was previously fixed in Oracle and IBM Java plugins as CVE-2008-5343 (bug 474790).

This patch is fixing the issue. Troubles will come when not just zip jars will be used (and so jar header will change) - eg pack2000 in jdk8.
Otherwise it was quite tested and looks ok.
