|Package(s):||icedtea-web||CVE #(s):||CVE-2013-1926 CVE-2013-1927|
|Created:||April 18, 2013||Updated:||June 11, 2013|
|Description:||From the Red Hat advisory:
It was discovered that the IcedTea-Web plug-in incorrectly used the same class loader instance for applets with the same value of the codebase attribute, even when they originated from different domains. A malicious applet could use this flaw to gain information about and possibly manipulate applets from different domains currently running in the browser. (CVE-2013-1926)
The IcedTea-Web plug-in did not properly check the format of the downloaded Java Archive (JAR) files. This could cause the plug-in to execute code hidden in a file in a different format, possibly allowing attackers to execute code in the context of web sites that allow uploads of specific file types, known as a GIFAR attack. (CVE-2013-1927)
