One of the changes in 6u105 is disabling SSL_RSA_WITH_DES_CBC_SHA. The cipher shows up as one of the supported ciphers, however any attempt to enable this cipher fails.
If a cipher suite is getting weak or vulnerable, it is normally removed from the default enabled list in JDK. The compatibility impact of the removing is normally minimal as if there are other available cipher suites enabled.
However, some applications may want to support the disabled cipher suites in JDK. If the source code is not accessible, there is not much workaround to have the cipher suite back to work if it is removed from the default enabled list in JDK.
