Red Hat Security Advisory

 

Synopsis: Low: Oracle Java SE 6 - notification of end of public updates

Advisory ID: RHSA-2013:0666-01

Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Supplementary

Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2013-0666.html

Issue date: 2013-03-20

=====================================================================

 

1. Summary:

 

Updates to the java-1.6.0-sun packages that disable the Java Web Browser

Plug-in and Web Start included in these packages. As a result, customers

who rely on Java-based browser applets may need to re-configure their

browser to use one of the Java implementations listed in the Solution

section below.

 

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

 

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop Supplementary (v. 5) - i386, x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop Supplementary (v. 6) - i386, x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node Supplementary (v. 6) - x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Supplementary (v. 5) - i386, x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Supplementary (v. 6) - i386, x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation Supplementary (v. 6) - i386, x86_64

 

3. Description:

 

Oracle Java SE version 6 includes the Oracle Java Runtime Environment and

the Oracle Java Software Development Kit.

 

Oracle Java SE 6 will not receive updates after February 28, 2013. The

Oracle Java SE 6 packages on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6

Supplementary media and in Red Hat Network (RHN) channels will continue to

be available.

 

Red Hat will continue to provide these packages only as a courtesy to

customers. Red Hat will not provide updates to these packages after this

date.

 

Once customers update their system by installing the packages associated

with this advisory, the Oracle Java Web Plug-in will be disabled. As a

result, customers who rely on Java-based browser applets may need to

re-configure their browser to use one of the Java implementations listed

in the Solution section below.

 

All users of java-1.6.0-sun are advised to upgrade to these updated

packages.

 

4. Solution:

 

Red Hat recommends that customers using Oracle Java SE 6 choose one of the

following alternative Java implementations:

 

* OpenJDK 6, which is available and supported in Red Hat Enterprise

Linux 5 and 6.

 

* IBM's Java SE 6, which is available on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5

and 6 Supplementary media and Supplementary RHN channels through

September 2017.

 

* OpenJDK 7, which is available and supported in Red Hat Enterprise

Linux 5 and 6.

 

* IBM's Java SE 7, which is available on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5

and 6 Supplementary media and Supplementary RHN channels.

 

* Oracle Java SE 7, which is available today on the Red Hat Enterprise

Linux 5 and 6 Supplementary media and Supplementary RHN channels.

 

Please refer to Red Hat Knowledge solution 314713 for information on how

to install and configure any of these Java implementations. This solution

also describes how customers who rely on Java-based browser applets can

re-configure their Java Web Plug-in.

 

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata

relevant to your system have been applied.

 

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to

use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at

https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258
