APPLE-SA-2006-04-18 J2SE 5.0 Release 4

J2SE 5.0 Release 4 is now available for Mac OS X v10.4.5 and provides
fixes for the following security issues:

CVE-ID:  CVE-2006-0613
Available for:  Mac OS X v10.4.5, Mac OS X Server v10.4.5
Impact:  Untrusted Java applications may obtain elevated
privileges.
Description:  A security vulnerability in Java Web Start may
allow an untrusted application to elevate its privileges. This
update addresses the issue by providing J2SE version 1.5.0_06,
which is not susceptible to this vulnerability. For additional
information on this issue see Sun Alert 102170 (http://
sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-26-102170-1)

CVE-ID:  CVE-2006-0614, CVE-2006-0615, CVE-2006-0616,
CVE-2006-0617
Available for:  Mac OS X v10.4.5, Mac OS X Server v10.4.5
Impact:  Untrusted Java applets may obtain elevated privileges.
Description:  Security vulnerabilites related to the use of
"reflection" APIs in the Java Runtime Environment may allow an
untrusted applet to elevate its privileges. This update
addresses these issues by providing J2SE version 1.5.0_06, which
is not susceptible to these vulnerabilities. For additional
information on these issues see Sun Alert 102171 (http://
sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-26-102171-1)

Additionally, a minor security-related fix for Java InputMethods
is included in this update. Due to an issue handling input method
events, it is possible that key events intended for a secure field
such as a password field may be sent to a normal text field in the
same window. This could result in accidental password disclosure to
others physically present when the password is entered. This update
addresses the problem by properly handling input method events.

System Preferences, or Apple's Software Downloads web site:
