Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2007:0167
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2007:0167.

IBM's 1.5.0 Java release includes the IBM Java 2 Runtime Environment and
the IBM Java 2 Software Development Kit.

A flaw in GIF image handling was found in the SUN Java Runtime Environment
that has now been reported as also affecting IBM Java 2. An untrusted
applet or application could use this flaw to elevate its privileges and
potentially execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2007-0243)

This update also resolves the following issues:

* The java-1.5.0-ibm-plugin sub-package conflicted with the new
java-1.5.0-sun-plugin sub-package.

* The java-1.5.0-ibm-plugin package had incorrect dependencies. The
java-1.5.0-ibm-alsa package has been merged into the java-1.5.0-ibm package
to resolve this issue.

All users of java-ibm-1.5.0 should upgrade to these packages, which contain
IBM's 1.5.0 SR4 Java release which resolves these issues.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
