Description :

An update for java-1.6.0-sun is now available for Oracle Java for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5, Oracle Java for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6,
and Oracle Java for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security
impact of Critical. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base
score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each
vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

Oracle Java SE version 6 includes the Oracle Java Runtime Environment
and the Oracle Java Software Development Kit.

This update upgrades Oracle Java SE 6 to version 6 Update 141.

Security Fix(es) :

* This update fixes multiple vulnerabilities in the Oracle Java
Runtime Environment and the Oracle Java Software Development Kit.
Further information about these flaws can be found on the Oracle Java
SE Critical Patch Update Advisory page, listed in the References
section. (CVE-2016-2183, CVE-2016-5546, CVE-2016-5548, CVE-2016-5552,
CVE-2017-3231, CVE-2017-3241, CVE-2017-3252, CVE-2017-3253,
CVE-2017-3259, CVE-2017-3261, CVE-2017-3272)

This update mitigates the CVE-2016-2183 issue by adding 3DES cipher
suites to the list of legacy algorithms (defined using the
jdk.tls.legacyAlgorithms security property) so they are only used if
connecting TLS/SSL client and server do not share any other non-legacy
cipher suite.
