Default New holes discovered in latest Java versions

From http://h-online.com/-1810990

Security Explorations has informed Oracle of two new vulnerabilities in Java, "issue 54" and "issue 55", which it says can be combined to completely bypass Java's sandbox security. Adam Gowdiak, researcher at Security Explorations, told Softpedia that the problems are specific to Java 7 SE versions, and allow abuse of the Reflection API in Java, "in a particularly interesting way".


Java security flaws have been making the headlines recently, especially after companies including Twitter, Apple, Microsoft and Facebook found attackers had, using Java flaws, hijacked iPhoneDevSDK forums to deliver malware to employee laptops.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
