Description Josh Bressers 2008-06-23 20:36:36 EDT
Security researcher Collin Jackson reported a series of vulnerabilities which
allow JavaScript to be injected into signed JARs and executed under the context
of the JAR's signer. This could allow an attacker to run JavaScript in a
victim's browser with the privileges of a different website, provided the
attacker possesses a JAR signed by the other website.

One vulnerability that Jackson reported allowed JavaScript to be injected into
documents inside a signed JAR file. An additional vulnerability reported by
Jackson exploited signed JAR files which use relative URLs to JavaScript files.
An attacker could use this vulnerability to trick the browser into treating an
attacker-controlled JavaScript file as the file the signed JAR intended to
reference.
