This could allow an unprivileged application the ability to read or write files
on a local system which could lead to arbitrary code execution.

Comment 1 Mark J. Cox 2007-05-10 11:58:29 UTC
Note that we shipped the Sun Java for the first time in Red Hat Enterprise Linux
4 Update 5.  The version we shipped already contained a fix for this
vulnerability, therefore no update is required for Sun Java on Red Hat
Enterprise Linux
