I'm not too sure about OpenJDK/JRE -- I've got a couple of Java applications that don't work quite right in OpenJDK/JRE but did and do in the previous and current versions of Sun/Oracle Java. 'Course the glitches will probably get fixed (quick as is standard behavior in open source) but for right now, uh-uh, thanks but no thanks. I've spent a few days ringing out those applications in both and, nope, not quite ready for prime time.

According to Oracle, it looks like Java 6 is also affected:

("JDK and JRE 7 Update 6 and before
JDK and JRE 6 Update 34 and before")

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/to...1-1835715.html

A Java 6 update 35 is available at Oracle.

I don't know if OpenJDK has the same vulnerability. Does anyone know?

The OpenJDK releases have the vulnerability patched in OpenJRE/JDK and IcedTea as per the news on the OpenJDK website.

Thanks for the info. I didn't checked OpenJDK before posting...

More info here:
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.j...beans.devel/34

From this post I think that OpenJDK6 was not affected... But I don't understand much
