Vendor Statements (disclaimer)

Official Statement from Red Hat (11/06/2007)

Not vulnerable. This issue did not affect versions of geronimo-specs packages as shipped Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, Red Hat Application Stack, Red Hat Application Server, Red Hat Directory Server and Red Hat Certificate System, as the geronimo-specs package only contains the specification of the Apache Geronimo Server’s services and interfaces and not the vulnerable J2EE server classes.
