Description Thomas Fitzsimmons 2007-04-20 19:17:52 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #236894 +++

In January 2007 a flaw was found affecting the SUN JRE; "Buffer overflow in Sun
JDK and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 9 and earlier, SDK and JRE
1.4.2_12 and earlier, and SDK and JRE 1.3.1_18 and earlier allows applets to
gain privileges via a GIF image with a block with a 0 width field, which
triggers memory corruption."

On 17th April 2007 IBM updated their alerts page to note that this issue
affected the IBM JRE and was fixed in 1.5.0SR4

Also affects RHEL4Extras

I've requested updated tarballs from my IBM contact.  I'll see if I can get what
I need from the public IBM site in the mean time.
