The remote SuSE 9 host is missing a security-related patch.
IBM Java 1.4.2 was updated to SR13 FP1.
It fixes following two security issues :
- A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
with parsing XML data might allow a remote client to
create a denial-of-service condition on the system that
the JRE runs on. (CVE-2009-2625)
- A vulnerability in how the Java Runtime Environment
(JRE) handles certain RSA public keys might cause the
JRE to consume an excessive amount of CPU resources.
This might lead to a Denial of Service (DoS) condition
on affected systems. Such keys could be provided by a
remote client of an application. (CVE-2008-5349)
This issue affects the following security providers: IBMJCE,
IBMPKCS11Impl and IBMJCEFIPS.
