There are all over warnings in the press about java,

what's about aptosid ?

To check it i do:

apt-cache policy sun-java*
sun-java5-jre:
Installiert: (keine)
Kandidat: (keine)

apt-cache policy openjdk*
openjdk-6-jre:
Installiert: 6b24~pre2-1
Kandidat: 6b24-1.11.3-2


java -version
java version "1.6.0_24"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.11pre) (6b24~pre2-1)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 20.0-b12, mixed mode, sharing)


is this the "bad"-java or the "good"-java ?

Or is my command wrong Smile ?

Just today i read they released a fixed version of java7, so consider all previous versions as insecure.

And I really have problems to compromize my box with http://ok.XXX4.net/meeting/hi.exe. Someone out there to help me? http://www.h-online.com/security/news/i ... 76219.html

Does this bug really affect Linux?

You might just disable the java plugin in your browser(s), Iceweasel has it in 'Extras' > 'Add-Ons' > 'Plugins'. There might be some other menu path for other browsers.

You could find you packages with 'dpkg -l| grep java', essentially it is the runtime environment which is critical. Do not mix javascript with java, they are two seperate items.
