Description Mark J. Cox 2007-02-02 13:49:03 UTC
IBM fixed a number of flaws in their Java Runtime Environment in 1.4.2 SR7.  A
security update is required for java-ibm-1.4.2 for RHEL4 Extras

        Two vulnerabilities in the Java Runtime Environment may
        independently allow an untrusted applet to access data in other
        applets. CVE-2006-6736 CVE-2006-6737 (sun#102732)

        Two vulnerabilities in the Java(TM) Runtime Environment with
        serialization may independently allow an untrusted applet or
        application to elevate its privileges. (sun#102731) CVE-2006-6745

        Two buffer overflow vulnerabilities in the Java(TM) Runtime
        Environment may independently allow an untrusted applet to
        elevate its privileges. For example, an applet may grant
        itself permissions to read and write local files or execute
        local applications that are accessible to the user running the
        untrusted applet.  (sun#102729) CVE-2006-6731

        An RSA(1) Signature Verification vulnerability allows
        unauthorized forged certificates to be validated. This may
        result in a number of different types of remote exploits.
        (20061012 sun#102646/8) CVE-2006-4339

Comment 3 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-02-02 21:18:41 UTC
I've requested new packages from IBM that will fix this issue.

Comment 4 Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-02-06 20:48:24 UTC
I received the fixed tarballs from IBM this afternoon.  I built the fixed
package, java-1.4.2-ibm-, into dist-4E-lacd-errata-candidate.
