- The Java 1.3 version to 1.3.1_19 for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 8.

- The Java 1.4 version (also known as Java 2) to 1.4.2_13 for SUSE
Linux Enterprise Desktop 1, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 9, SUSE
Linux 9.3, 10.0, 10.1 and openSUSE 10.2.

- The Java 1.5 version (also known as Java 5) to 1.5.0_10 for SUSE

from the Mitre CVE DB:

CVE-2006-6731:Multiple buffer overflows in Sun Java Development
Kit (JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 7 and
earlier, Java System Development Kit (SDK) and JRE 1.4.2_12 and
earlier 1.4.x versions, and SDK and JRE 1.3.1_18 and earlier
permit attackers to develop Java applets that read, write, or
execute local files, possibly related to (1) integer overflows in
the Java_sun_awt_image_ImagingLib_convolveBI, awt_parseRaster,
and awt_parseColorModel functions
(2) a stack overflow in
the Java_sun_awt_image_ImagingLib_lookupByteRaster function

and (3) improper handling of certain negative values in the

Java System Development Kit (SDK) and JRE 1.4.2_12 and earlier 1.4.x
versions, and SDK and JRE 1.3.1_18 and earlier permits attackers to
attackers to use untrusted applets to 'access data in other applets,'
aka 'The second issue.'

7 and earlier, and Java System Development Kit (SDK) and JRE 1.4.2_12
and earlier 1.4.x versions, permit attackers to develop Java applets or
applications that are able to gain rights, related to serialization
in JRE.
