1. Summary:

Updated java-1.5.0-sun packages that correct several security issues are
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Extras and 5 Supplementary.

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

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

RHEL Desktop Supplementary (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
RHEL Supplementary (v. 5 server) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Desktop version 4 Extras - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 Extras - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 Extras - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 Extras - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

The Sun 1.5.0 Java release includes the Sun Java 5 Runtime Environment and
the Sun Java 5 Software Development Kit.

This update fixes several vulnerabilities in the Sun Java 5 Runtime
Environment and the Sun Java 5 Software Development Kit. These
vulnerabilities are summarized on the "Advance notification of Security
Updates for Java SE" page from Sun Microsystems, listed in the References
section. (CVE-2009-2409, CVE-2009-3728, CVE-2009-3873, CVE-2009-3876,
CVE-2009-3877, CVE-2009-3879, CVE-2009-3880, CVE-2009-3881, CVE-2009-3882,
CVE-2009-3883, CVE-2009-3884)

Note: This is the final update for the java-1.5.0-sun packages, as the Sun
Java SE Release family 5.0 has now reached End of Service Life. The next
update will remove the java-1.5.0-sun packages.

An alternative to Sun Java SE 5.0 is the Java 2 Technology Edition of the
IBM Developer Kit for Linux, which is available from the Extras and
Supplementary channels on the Red Hat Network. For users of applications
that are capable of using the Java 6 runtime, the OpenJDK open source JDK
is included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (since 5.3) and is supported by
Red Hat.

Users of java-1.5.0-sun should upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct these issues. All running instances of Sun Java must be restarted
for the update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.
