The official guideline - as stated in the FC4 release notes - is to use
www.jpackage.org (non-free section) and to rpmbuild the Java engine RPM
from the non source containing SRC.RPM there. You will have to get the
self-extracting binary from java.sun.com manually.
There will be no update for Fedora through the default yum / up2date -
simply because Sun's Java isn't part of Fedora, and this due to it's
license.
To make it clear: I posted the info here, because I think a majority of
people running Fedora too have Sun's Java installed - whichever way they
did the install. And as said, like no official update or announcement
would happen I felt it was a good thing to inform list readers about the
severe security issue.

I posted Sun's official notification with my initial posting.
