Description


Updated java-1.6.0-openjdk packages that fix two security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important 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.

These packages provide the OpenJDK 6 Java Runtime Environment and the
OpenJDK 6 Software Development Kit.

It was discovered that the Beans component in OpenJDK did not perform
permission checks properly. An untrusted Java application or applet could
use this flaw to use classes from restricted packages, allowing it to
bypass Java sandbox restrictions. (CVE-2012-1682)

A hardening fix was applied to the AWT component in OpenJDK, removing
functionality from the restricted SunToolkit class that was used in
combination with other flaws to bypass Java sandbox restrictions.
(CVE-2012-0547)

This erratum also upgrades the OpenJDK package to IcedTea6 1.10.9. Refer to
the NEWS file, linked to in the References, for further information.

All users of java-1.6.0-openjdk are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which resolve these issues. All running instances of OpenJDK Java
must be restarted for the update to take effect.
