Description

Updated java-1.5.0-ibm packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 Extras and 5 Supplementary. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

The IBM 1.5.0 Java release includes the IBM Java 2 Runtime Environment and the IBM Java 2 Software Development Kit. A flaw was found in the way the TLS/SSL (Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer) protocols handle session renegotiation. A man-in-the-middle attacker could use this flaw to prefix arbitrary plain text to a client's session (for example, an HTTPS connection to a website). This could force the server to process an attacker's request as if authenticated using the victim's credentials. (CVE-2009-3555) This update disables renegotiation in the Java Secure Socket Extension (JSSE) component. Unsafe renegotiation can be re-enabled using the com.ibm.jsse2.renegotiate property. Refer to the following Knowledgebase article for details: http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-20491 All users of java-1.5.0-ibm are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, containing the IBM 1.5.0 SR11-FP1 Java release. All running instances of IBM Java must be restarted for this update to take effect.
