Details

Updated java-1.5.0-sun packages that correct several security issues are
now available for Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.1.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat
Security Response Team.

This update corrects several security vulnerabilities in the Sun Java
Runtime Environment shipped as part of Red Hat Network Satellite Server
5.1. In a typical operating environment, these are of low security risk as
the runtime is not used on untrusted applets.

Several flaws were fixed in the Sun Java 5 Runtime Environment.

Note: This is the final update for the java-1.5.0-sun packages, as the Sun
Java SE Release family 5.0 has now reached End of Service Life. An
alternative to Sun Java SE 5.0 is the Java 2 Technology Edition of the
IBM Developer Kit for Linux, which is available from the Satellite 5.1
channels on the Red Hat Network.

For a long term solution, Red Hat advises users to switch from Sun Java SE
5.0 to the Java 2 Technology Edition of the IBM Developer Kit for Linux.
Refer to the Solution section for instructions.

Users of Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.1 are advised to upgrade to
these updated java-1.5.0-sun packages, which resolve these issues. All
running instances of Sun Java must be restarted for the update to take
effect.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

Run the following commands to switch from Sun Java SE 5.0 to the Java 2
Technology Edition of the IBM Developer Kit for Linux:

1) up2date -i java-1.5.0-ibm java-1.5.0-ibm-devel dwr

2) service rhn-satellite stop

3) alternatives --set java /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.5.0-ibm/bin/java

4) alternatives --set javac /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-ibm/bin/javac

5) service rhn-satellite start
