Well here is my take on that information from »security.stackexchange.c ··· -icedtea
There is this statement "Java 7 and OpenJDK share a lot of common code, so, as a general rule, security issues in Java 7 also apply to OpenJDK. In that specific case, it seems that the vulnerability was reported in the Debian OpenJDK package, so yes, they are vulnerable."
Well first there is no specific case sited (it could be assuming VU#625617) and the reference (»askubuntu.com/questions/ ··· -for-now
) to the reported vulnerability in the Debian OpenJDK package refers to the second link in my post VU#636312 dated 27 Aug 2012 which was been patched.
While it is possible that the current vulnerability affects OpenJDK, it is not specifically listed as affected by the vulnerability alert for VU#625617 dated 10 Jan 2013.
VU#625617 has been patched by Oracle and as I have already mentioned. I am not all that concerned about this; and this has nothing to do with my preferred operating system being Linux. I do run Windows and have Java install their as well. I think there is a lot of over reaction to this.--
