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 and two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Extras, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6 Supplementary.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical 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.

The IBM 1.6.0 Java release includes the IBM Java 2 Runtime Environment and the IBM Java 2 Software Development Kit.

This update fixes several vulnerabilities in the IBM Java 2 Runtime Environment. Detailed vulnerability descriptions are linked from the IBM 'Security alerts' page, listed in the References section.
(CVE-2009-3555, CVE-2010-1321, CVE-2010-3541, CVE-2010-3548, CVE-2010-3549, CVE-2010-3550, CVE-2010-3551, CVE-2010-3553, CVE-2010-3555, CVE-2010-3556, CVE-2010-3557, CVE-2010-3558, CVE-2010-3560, CVE-2010-3562, CVE-2010-3563, CVE-2010-3565, CVE-2010-3566, CVE-2010-3568, CVE-2010-3569, CVE-2010-3571, CVE-2010-3572, CVE-2010-3573, CVE-2010-3574)

This update also fixes the following bugs :

* An error in the java-1.6.0-ibm RPM spec file caused an incorrect path to be included in HtmlConverter, preventing it from running.
(BZ#659716)

* On AMD64 and Intel 64 systems, if only the 64-bit java-1.6.0-ibm packages were installed, IBM Java 6 Web Start was not available as an application that could open JNLP (Java Network Launching Protocol) files. This affected file management and web browser tools. Users had to manually open them with the '/usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-ibm.x86_64/bin/javaws' command. This update resolves this issue. (BZ#633341)

All users of java-1.6.0-ibm are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, containing the IBM 1.6.0 SR9 Java release. All running instances of IBM Java must be restarted for the update to take effect.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
