Red Hat Security Advisory 2012-0987-04 - The SBLIM CIM Client is a class library for Java applications that provides access to CIM servers using the CIM Operations over HTTP protocol defined by the DMTF standards. It was found that the Java HashMap implementation was susceptible to predictable hash collisions. SBLIM uses HashMap when parsing XML inputs. A specially-crafted CIM-XML message from a WBEM server could cause a SBLIM client to use an excessive amount of CPU. Randomization has been added to help avoid collisions.
