Description Stefan Cornelius 2014-07-15 06:36:45 UTC
It was discovered that the event logger contains a format string
error.  An untrusted Java application or applet could possibly use
this flaw to cause the Java Virtual Machine to crash, or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the Java Virtual Machine.
