Dear All,

Because the latest security issue (Feb/2013) also affect 1.4.2, it need to be patched.

And there is also a release note for 1.4.2_42 that fix that security issue.

So anyone know if this release of 1.4.2_42 exist and how can I download it?

Thank you very much!

    You likely need a support contract to get patches done in extended support. That's the price you pay for sticking with really outdated technology.

    I'm not sure this is a matter of sticking with outdated software. This software gets installed as part of the Solaris 10 system and users like myself may not know why. We don't use it directly in our work but does any part of Solaris need it? If I removed it would anything break? If I knew it was safe to remove, i'd remove it. It isn't always clear what dependencies the system may have on outdated software packages such as these.
