New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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

Description

Updated java-1.4.2-ibm packages that fix two security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Extras and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Supplementary.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate 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 1.4.2 SR13-FP8 Java release includes the IBM Java 2 Runtime Environment and the IBM Java 2 Software Development Kit.

This update fixes two vulnerabilities in the IBM Java 2 Runtime Environment and the IBM Java 2 Software Development Kit. Detailed vulnerability descriptions are linked from the IBM 'Security alerts' page, listed in the References section. (CVE-2010-1321, CVE-2010-3574)

Note: The RHSA-2010:0935 java-1.4.2-ibm update did not, unlike the erratum text stated, provide fixes for the above issues.

All users of java-1.4.2-ibm are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain the IBM 1.4.2 SR13-FP8 Java release. All running instances of IBM Java must be restarted for this update to take effect.
