package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
The SBLIM (Standards-Based Linux Instrumentation for Manageability) CIM
(Common Information Model) Client is a class library for Java applications
that provides access to CIM servers using the CIM Operations over HTTP
protocol defined by the DMTF (Distributed Management Task Force) standards.

It was found that the Java HashMap implementation was susceptible to
predictable hash collisions. SBLIM uses HashMap when parsing XML inputs. A
specially-crafted CIM-XML message from a WBEM (Web-Based Enterprise
Management) server could cause a SBLIM client to use an excessive amount of
CPU. Randomization has been added to help avoid collisions. (CVE-2012-2328)

All users of sblim-cim-client2 are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported patch to resolve this issue.

Affected Software/OS:
sblim-cim-client2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Please Install the Updated Packages.
