More information:

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in OpenJDK, an implementation of the Oracle Java platform, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code, breakouts of the Java sandbox, information disclosure or denial of service.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 6b32-1.13.4-1~deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openjdk-6 packages.
