How to find the status of a bug that is "not available"

A few months ago, I submitted a bug to Sun, and received an e-mail informing me that this had been determined to be a new bug, with ID 4992463. I was given the following URL to track the bug:

http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/bugParade/bugs/4992463.html

Visiting the URL results in the "This bug is not available" message, leading me to believe that it may have been classified as a "security bug", which does not show up in the user-accessible bug database. I wouldn't really classify it as a security bug, although my example did include use of the KeyPairGenerator class. Also, this bug had previously been publicly discussed on a Google Groups forum, so I don't really see any point in trying to keep it secret.

My question: is there any way (at least for the submitter) to find out the current status of such a bug that is "not available"? My evaluation of the bug has led to some fairly significant changes in my coding practices for threading, so I'm personally quite interested to see the review/evaluation (or at least the final outcome: fixed, not a bug, will not be fixed, etc.) of this bug.

Regards,
Daniel

Hi,
By default the security bugs are not shown on JDC,
for obvious reasons. Yet, this bug you mention was
actually reclassified as a classloader problem. So it
should be available on JDC now. Try :

http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4992463

It seems to work now.

Regards,
Bino.
