Description Josh Bressers 2010-12-06 14:05:50 EST
Security researcher Gregory Fleischer reported that when a Java LiveConnect
script was loaded via a data: URL which redirects via a meta refresh, then
the resulting plugin object was created with the wrong security principal
and thus received elevated privileges such as the abilities to read local
files, launch processes, and create network connections.
