+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #767129 +++

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:
- use non-CBC cipher (e.g. one of RC4 cipher suites)
- disable CVE-2011-3389 mitigation using -Djsse.enableCBCProtection=false

Comment 1 Tomas Hoger 2012-02-24 13:43:15 EST
This was fixed upstream in IcedTea 1.10.5.  We have updated to 1.10.6 in
RHSA-2012:0322, hence this issue is fixed.
