DSA 2987-2: openjdk-7 regression update

Package : openjdk-7

The previous security update for OpenJDK 7, DSA-2987-1, introduced a
regression due to an overly strict bytecode verifier. As a result,
legitimate bytecode which is produced by some non-Java languages would
no longer run.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 7u65-2.5.1-5~deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your openjdk-7 packages.
