Red Hat Announces OpenJDK Security Update
The announcement follows Oracle's recent release of Java 6 Update 19.
"The update comes after Oracle updated Java 6 with Update 19 and addresses many of the same vulnerabilities," according to The H Security. "These include flaws which could bypass access restrictions such as buffer overflows, input validation, incorrect handling of large values and incorrect interpretation of network addresses."
"The TLS/SSL session renegotiation problem has also been temporarily addressed, in the same way as the Oracle update, by disabling renegotiation," the article states. "It is expected that it will be fixed and re-enabled in a later update."
