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.
