Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Red Hat Network Satellite Server version 5.1.1 is now available. This
update includes fixes for a number of security issues in the Red Hat
Network Satellite Server Sun Java Runtime Environment.

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

This release 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.

Multiple flaws were fixed in the Sun Java 1.5.0 Runtime Environment.
(CVE-2008-3103, CVE-2008-3104, CVE-2008-3107, CVE-2008-3111,
CVE-2008-3112, CVE-2008-3113, CVE-2008-3114)

Users of Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.1 are advised to upgrade
to 5.1.1, which resolves these issues.
