Details

Updated java-1.6.0-sun packages that fix several security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Extras and 5 Supplementary.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

The Sun 1.6.0 Java release includes the Sun Java 6 Runtime Environment and
the Sun Java 6 Software Development Kit.

This update fixes several vulnerabilities in the Sun Java 6 Runtime
Environment and the Sun Java 6 Software Development Kit. Further
information about these flaws can be found on the "Oracle Java SE and Java
for Business Critical Patch Update Advisory" page, listed in the References
section. (CVE-2010-1321, CVE-2010-3541, CVE-2010-3548, CVE-2010-3549,

The RHSA-2010:0337 update mitigated a man-in-the-middle attack in the way
the TLS/SSL (Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer) protocols
handle session renegotiation by disabling renegotiation. This update
implements the TLS Renegotiation Indication Extension as defined in RFC
5746, allowing secure renegotiation between updated clients and servers.
(CVE-2009-3555)

Users of java-1.6.0-sun should upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct these issues. All running instances of Sun Java must be restarted
for the update to take effect.
