3. Description:

The Sun 1.5.0 Java release includes the Sun Java 5 Runtime Environment and
the Sun Java 5 Software Development Kit.

The java-1.5.0-sun packages are vulnerable to a number of security flaws
and should no longer be used. (CVE-2009-3555, CVE-2010-0082, CVE-2010-0084,
CVE-2010-0085, CVE-2010-0087, CVE-2010-0088, CVE-2010-0089, CVE-2010-0091,
CVE-2010-0092, CVE-2010-0093, CVE-2010-0094, CVE-2010-0095, CVE-2010-0837,
CVE-2010-0838, CVE-2010-0839, CVE-2010-0840, CVE-2010-0841, CVE-2010-0842,
CVE-2010-0843, CVE-2010-0844, CVE-2010-0845, CVE-2010-0846, CVE-2010-0847,
CVE-2010-0848, CVE-2010-0849)

The Sun Java SE Release family 5.0 reached its End of Service Life on
November 3, 2009. The RHSA-2009:1571 update provided the final publicly
available update of version 5.0 (Update 22). Users interested in continuing
to receive critical fixes for Sun Java SE 5.0 should contact Oracle:

http://www.sun.com/software/javaforbusiness/index.jsp

An alternative to Sun Java SE 5.0 is the Java 2 Technology Edition of the
IBM Developer Kit for Linux, which is available from the Extras and
Supplementary channels on the Red Hat Network.

Applications capable of using the Java 6 runtime can be migrated to Java 6
on: OpenJDK (java-1.6.0-openjdk), an open source JDK included in Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5, since 5.3; the IBM JDK, java-1.6.0-ibm; or the Sun JDK,
java-1.6.0-sun.

This update removes the java-1.5.0-sun packages as they have reached their
End of Service Life.

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.
