Description

Updated java-1.6.0-openjdk packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.

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.

These packages provide the OpenJDK 6 Java Runtime Environment and the OpenJDK 6 Software Development Kit.

A denial of service flaw was found in the way certain strings were converted to Double objects. A remote attacker could use this flaw to cause Java-based applications to hang, for instance if they parse Double values in a specially crafted HTTP request. (CVE-2010-4476)

All users of java-1.6.0-openjdk are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve this issue. All running instances of OpenJDK Java must be restarted for the update to take effect.
