Description of problem:
A regression was found in the fix for CVE-2011-3389/7064341 that was applied to Oracle JDK 6u29 and matching OpenJDK update.  This causes connections to certain SSL servers to hang:


In our case, this problem was reported for JBoss products using JDBC to connect to Microsoft SQL server.  Some workarounds were identified:

- disable CVE-2011-3389 mitigation using -Djsse.enableCBCProtection=false
