CVE-2013-1571
It was found that documentation generated by Javadoc was vulnerable to a frame injection attack. If such documentation was accessible over a network, and a remote attacker could trick a user into visiting a specially-crafted URL, it would lead to arbitrary web content being displayed next to the documentation. This could be used to perform a phishing attack by providing frame content that spoofed a login form on the site hosting the vulnerable documentation.

Note: If your system has not yet been upgraded to Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 and the web browser plug-in provided by the icedtea-web package was installed, the issues exposed via Java applets could have been exploited without user interaction if a user visited a malicious website. Thus, this update has been rated as having critical security impact as a one time exception. The icedtea-web package as provided with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 uses OpenJDK 7 instead.
This erratum also upgrades the OpenJDK package to IcedTea6 1.11.9. Refer to the NEWS file for further information.
