and the IBM Java 2 Software Development Kit.

This update fixes several vulnerabilities in the IBM Java 2 Runtime
Environment and the IBM Java 2 Software Development Kit. Detailed
vulnerability descriptions are linked from the IBM 'Security alerts'
page, listed in the References section. (CVE-2010-1321, CVE-2010-3541,

The RHSA-2010:0130 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)

All users of java-1.5.0-ibm are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, containing the IBM 1.5.0 SR12-FP2 Java release. All running
instances of IBM Java must be restarted for this update to take
effect.
