Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated java-1.6.0-ibm packages that fix several security issues are
now available for Red Hat Network Satellite Server 5.4, 5.5, and 5.6.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having Low
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
Server 5.4, 5.5, and 5.6. 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 IBM Java 2 Runtime Environment.
