Description :

Updated java-1.6.0-ibm packages that fix several security issues are
now available for Red Hat Network Satellite 5.4.1 for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

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.

This update corrects several security vulnerabilities in the IBM Java
Runtime Environment shipped as part of Red Hat Network Satellite
5.4.1. In a typical operating environment, these are of low security
risk as the runtime is not used on untrusted applets.
