Description

The Java Update functionality in Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 22 as well as JDK and JRE 6 before Update 17, when a non-English version of Windows is used, does not retrieve available new JRE versions, which allows remote attackers to leverage vulnerabilities in older releases of this software.
