Environment (JRE) component in Oracle Java SE 6 Update 25 and earlier,
5.0 Update 29 and earlier, and 1.4.2_31 and earlier allows remote
untrusted Java Web Start applications and untrusted Java applets to
affect confidentiality via unknown vectors related to Networking.

CVE-2011-0871: Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime
Environment (JRE) component in Oracle Java SE 6 Update 25 and earlier,
5.0 Update 29 and earlier, and 1.4.2_31 and earlier allows remote
untrusted Java Web Start applications and untrusted Java applets
to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown
vectors related to Swing.

CVE-2011-0872: Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime
Environment (JRE) component in Oracle Java SE 6 Update 25 and earlier
allows remote attackers to affect availability via unknown vectors
related to NIO.

CVE-2011-0873: Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime
Environment (JRE) component in Oracle Java SE 6 Update 25 and earlier,
and 5.0 Update 29 and earlier, allows remote attackers to affect
confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors
related to 2D.

2) Solution or Work-Around

There is no known workaround, please install the update packages.

3) Special Instructions and Notes

Please restart running instances of IBM Java after the update.

4) Package Location and Checksums

The preferred method for installing security updates is to use the YaST
"Online Update" module or the "zypper" commandline tool. The package and
patch management stack will detect which updates are required and
automatically perform the necessary steps to verify and install them.

Alternatively, download the update packages for your distribution manually
and verify their integrity by the methods listed in Section 6 of this
announcement. Then install the packages using the command

  rpm -Fhv <file.rpm>

to apply the update, replacing <file.rpm> with the filename of the
downloaded RPM package.

Our maintenance customers are notified individually. The packages are
offered for installation from the maintenance web:

6) Authenticity Verification and Additional Information

- Announcement authenticity verification:

 SUSE security announcements are published via mailing lists and on Web
 sites. The authenticity and integrity of a SUSE security announcement is
 guaranteed by a cryptographic signature in each announcement. All SUSE
 security announcements are published with a valid signature.

 To verify the signature of the announcement, save it as text into a file
 and run the command

   gpg --verify <file>

 replacing <file> with the name of the file where you saved the
 announcement. The output for a valid signature looks like:

   gpg: Signature made <DATE> using RSA key ID 3D25D3D9
   gpg: Good signature from "SuSE Security Team <security@suse.de>"

 where <DATE> is replaced by the date the document was signed.

 If the security team's key is not contained in your key ring, you can
 import it from the first installation CD. To import the key, use the
 command

   gpg --import gpg-pubkey-3d25d3d9-36e12d04.asc

- Package authenticity verification:

 SUSE update packages are available on many mirror FTP servers all over the
 world. While this service is considered valuable and important to the free
 and open source software community, the authenticity and the integrity of
 a package needs to be verified to ensure that it has not been tampered
 with.

 The internal rpm package signatures provide an easy way to verify the
 authenticity of an RPM package. Use the command

  rpm -v --checksig <file.rpm>

 to verify the signature of the package, replacing <file.rpm> with the
 filename of the RPM package downloaded. The package is unmodified if it
 contains a valid signature from build@suse.de with the key ID 9C800ACA.

 This key is automatically imported into the RPM database (on
 RPMv4-based distributions) and the gpg key ring of 'root' during
 installation. You can also find it on the first installation CD and at
 the end of this announcement.

- SUSE runs two security mailing lists to which any interested party may
 subscribe:

 opensuse-security@opensuse.org
     -   General Linux and SUSE security discussion.
         All SUSE security announcements are sent to this list.
         To subscribe, send an e-mail to
             <opensuse-security+subscribe@opensuse.org>.

 opensuse-security-announce@opensuse.org
     -   SUSE's announce-only mailing list.
         Only SUSE's security announcements are sent to this list.
         To subscribe, send an e-mail to
             <opensuse-security-announce+subscribe@opensuse.org>.
