       HEWLETT-PACKARD COMPANY SECURITY BULLETIN: #010, 20 Feb. '01
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
        The information in the following Security Bulletin should be
        acted upon as soon as possible. Hewlett-Packard Company will
        not be liable for any consequences to any customer resulting
        from customer's failure to fully implement instructions in
        this Security Bulletin as soon as possible.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    ISSUE: Sun Microsystems discovered a potential security issue
            in the Java Runtime Environment. The issue poses a
            possible security risk by allowing an untrusted class
            to call into a disallowed class under certain
            circumstances.

    PLATFORM: HP e3000 running MPE/iX releases 6.0, 6.5, or 7.0.
               This security bulletin applies only to Java on MPE/iX.
               It does not cover software shipped on HP-UX, Linux,
               nor on Windows/NT.

    POSSIBLE RESULT: Improper access rights may be granted in some cases.

    SOLUTION: Install the latest Java releases as described below.
               JDK/JRE 1.2.2, MPE Version A.22.04 or higher
                    for all MPE/iX Releases
                                   - or -
               JDK/JRE 1.3 (when available) for MPE/iX 7.0

    AVAILABILITY: The fixed releases are available immediately.
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    I.
      A. Background
         Java 1.1 and 1.2 applications may permit unauthorized
         access in some cases.

      B. Fixing the problem
         Obtain and install the latest releases of the Java products.
         For JDK/JRE 1.2.2 based releases go to
            http://jazz.external.hp.com/src/java/jdks/JDK1.2.2.html.
         Follow the process below to determine your installed Java
         version on MPE/iX.

      C. Recommended solution
         JDK 1.2.2, MPE Version A.22.04 * or higher for all MPE/iX Releases
                                   - or -
         JDK 1.3 (when available) for MPE/iX 7.0

         * NOTE: JDK/JRE MPE Version A.22.04 is the minimum to resolve the
                 issue addressed in this security bulletin. However, JDK
                 version A.22.05 or later is preferred since they incorporate
                 product quality enhancements.

         For JDK/JRE 1.1.x based releases, the recommended solution is
         to update to a 1.2.2 based version of Java.
