In addition to the above, USN-2033-1 fixed several vulnerabilities and bugs
in OpenJDK 6. This update introduced a regression which caused an exception
condition in javax.xml when instantiating encryption algorithms. This
update fixes the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
  icedtea-6-jre-cacao             6b30-1.13.1-1ubuntu2~0.12.04.1
  icedtea-6-jre-jamvm             6b30-1.13.1-1ubuntu2~0.12.04.1
  openjdk-6-jre                   6b30-1.13.1-1ubuntu2~0.12.04.1
  openjdk-6-jre-headless          6b30-1.13.1-1ubuntu2~0.12.04.1
  openjdk-6-jre-lib               6b30-1.13.1-1ubuntu2~0.12.04.1
  openjdk-6-jre-zero              6b30-1.13.1-1ubuntu2~0.12.04.1

Ubuntu 10.04 LTS:
  icedtea-6-jre-cacao             6b30-1.13.1-1ubuntu2~0.10.04.1
  openjdk-6-jre                   6b30-1.13.1-1ubuntu2~0.10.04.1
  openjdk-6-jre-headless          6b30-1.13.1-1ubuntu2~0.10.04.1
  openjdk-6-jre-lib               6b30-1.13.1-1ubuntu2~0.10.04.1
  openjdk-6-jre-zero              6b30-1.13.1-1ubuntu2~0.10.04.1

This update uses a new upstream release, which includes additional bug
fixes. After a standard system update you need to restart any Java
applications or applets to make all the necessary changes.
