Details

Updated icedtea-web packages that fix one security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
the References section.

The IcedTea-Web project provides a Java web browser plug-in and an
implementation of Java Web Start, which is based on the Netx project. It
also contains a configuration tool for managing deployment settings for the
plug-in and Web Start implementations.

open network connections to hosts other than the originating host,
violating the same-origin policy. (CVE-2011-3377)

All IcedTea-Web users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
upgrade IcedTea-Web to version 1.0.6 to correct this issue. Web browsers
using the IcedTea-Web browser plug-in must be restarted for this update to
