PROBLEM:  A vulnerability exists in Java(TM) Secure Socket
          Extension(JSSE) where it may be possible under certain
          circumstances to gather information about the data
          transmitted over a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) or a
          Transport Layer Security (TLS) channel with CBC
          encryption.  The issue does not expose private or
          session keys.

          A second vulnerability exists where it may be possible
          under certain circumstances to extract private keys

 A. Background
    Javasoft has issued their Security Bulletins 114.

- - -->> A product which imbeds the JVM and JRE is Servicecontrol

- - -->> B.03.00.01, B.03.00.02, and B.03.00.03 all use the JVM and
- - -->> supply the JRE as part of the product.
- - -->> This issue affects those SCM 3.0 depots; a new release
- - -->> depot is now available.


    The following is a list by HP-UX revision of
    affected filesets or patches and fix information.
    To determine if a system has an affected version,
    search the output of "swlist -a revision -l fileset"
    for an affected fileset or patch, then determine if
    a fixed revision or applicable patch is installed.

- - -->> for Java SDK and RTE
     HP-UX B.11.22
     HP-UX B.11.11
     HP-UX B.11.00
     fix: Affected versions and the corresponding fixes
         are listed elsewhere in this bulletin.
