New Fixes in 4.1.1-TMF-0124:

APAR IZ96820
Symptoms: Java parseDouble Security Vulnerability in JRE 1.3.1
shipped with the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) component of
Tivoli Management Framework.

There is no known issue about running the Tivoli Management
Framework components like JRIM, JCF, and the MDist2 GUI.
However, JRE 1.3.1 shipped with the Java Runtime Environment
(JRE) component of Tivoli Management Framework could be
affected by the vulnerability.

This problem relates to security vulnerability CVE-2010-4476
http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/alert-cve-2010-4476-305811.html

This patch provides the updated JRE for Solaris, AIX, Windows,
OS/2, Linux-ix86, and Linux-s390. This patch does not provide the
updated JRE for HPUX because all HP remediations require the
use of HP supplied FPUpdater Tool. IBM does not have the source
code of JRE 1.3.1 from HP and can not make the change.
