The full internal version number for this update release is 1.6.0_22-b04 (where "b" means "build"). The external version number is 6u22.
Java SE 6u22 contains Olson time zone data version 2010l. For more information, refer to Timezone Data Versions in the JRE Software.
Java SE 6u22 specifies the following security baselines for use with Java Plug-in technology:
|JRE Family Version||Java SE Security Baseline||Java for Business Security Baseline|
For more information about the security baseline, see Deploying Java Applets With Family JRE Versions in Java Plug-in for Internet Explorer .
Added new Entrust Root CA-G2 and updated Entrust.net CA (2048) root certificates. (Refer to 6959911.)
If an applet is suspected of failing due to this change you can verify that by setting the logging level of the Java Console to 5 and looking for logging strings beginning with "socket access restriction" which will describe the specific cause of the mismatch and will help in identifying the correct workaround to use as described below:
host.auth.ddd.ccc.bbb.aaa.in-addr.arpa # /etc/hosts example 10.11.12.13 foo.bar.com.auth.126.96.36.199.in-addr.arpa
There is an equivalent form for IPv6 addresses which uses the IP6.ARPA domain root format defined in RFC 3596.
For DNS, these would be A (IPv4) or AAAA (IPv6) entries.
#10.11.12.13 foo loghost 10.11.12.13 foo.bar.com foo loghost
As an alternative to updating name service records, it may be possible to safely modify the applet to perform the network action using only it's own permissions independent of the web page which contains it by using the doPrivileged() method of the java.security.AccessController class.
