Fedora 10 : java-1.6.0-openjdk-1.6.0.0-9.b14.fc10 (2009-1373)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This fixes a default security policy, that allowed unsigned applets to
access the gnome-java-bridge, allowing a privilege escalation
(#474431). There are also several bug fixes included in this update.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
