Description

Updated java-1.4.2-ibm packages to correct a set of security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4 Extras and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 Supplementary.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

IBM's 1.4.2 SR9 Java release includes the IBM Java 2 Runtime Environment and the IBM Java 2 Software Development Kit.

A security vulnerability in the Java Web Start component was discovered. An untrusted application could elevate it's privileges and read and write local files that are accessible to the user running the Java Web Start application. (CVE-2007-2435)

A buffer overflow in the image code JRE was found. An untrusted applet or application could use this flaw to elevate its privileges and potentially execute arbitrary code as the user running the java virtual machine. (CVE-2007-3004)

An unspecified vulnerability was discovered in the Java Runtime Environment. An untrusted applet or application could cause the java virtual machine to become unresponsive. (CVE-2007-3005)

All users of java-1.4.2-ibm should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain IBM's 1.4.2 SR9 Java release that resolves these issues.
