[slackware-security]  java (jre, j2sdk) (SSA:2005-170-01)

Sun has released a couple of security advisories pertaining to both the
Java Runtime Environment and the Standard Edition Development Kit.
These could allow applets to read or write to local files.  For more
details, Sun's advisories may be found here:

  http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-26-101748-1
  http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-26-101749-1

Slackware repackage's Sun's Java(TM) binaries without changing them, so
the packages from Slackware -current should be used for all glibc based
Slackware versions.


Here are the details from the Slackware -current ChangeLog:
