RHEL 4 : Sun Java Runtime in Satellite Server (RHSA-2009:1662)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated java-1.5.0-sun packages that correct several security issues
are now available for Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.1.

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

This update 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.

Several flaws were fixed in the Sun Java 5 Runtime Environment.
(CVE-2006-2426, CVE-2008-2086, CVE-2009-1093, CVE-2009-1094,
CVE-2009-1095, CVE-2009-1096, CVE-2009-1098, CVE-2009-1099,
CVE-2009-1100, CVE-2009-1103, CVE-2009-1104, CVE-2009-1107,
CVE-2009-2409, CVE-2009-2475, CVE-2009-2625, CVE-2009-2670,
CVE-2009-2671, CVE-2009-2672, CVE-2009-2673, CVE-2009-2675,
CVE-2009-2676, CVE-2009-2689, CVE-2009-3728, CVE-2009-3873,
CVE-2009-3876, CVE-2009-3877, CVE-2009-3879, CVE-2009-3880,
CVE-2009-3881, CVE-2009-3882, CVE-2009-3883, CVE-2009-3884)

Note: This is the final update for the java-1.5.0-sun packages, as the
Sun Java SE Release family 5.0 has now reached End of Service Life. An
alternative to Sun Java SE 5.0 is the Java 2 Technology Edition of the
IBM Developer Kit for Linux, which is available from the Satellite 5.1
channels on the Red Hat Network.

For a long term solution, Red Hat advises users to switch from Sun
Java SE 5.0 to the Java 2 Technology Edition of the IBM Developer Kit
for Linux. Refer to the Solution section for instructions.

Users of Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.1 are advised to upgrade
to these updated java-1.5.0-sun packages, which resolve these issues.
All running instances of Sun Java must be restarted for the update to
take effect.
