*** This bug has been split off bug 143435 ***

------- Original comment by Josh Bressers (Security Response Team) on 2004.12.20

Two flaws in the Konqueror webbrowser make it possible to by pass the
sandbox environment which is used to run Java-applets.  One flaw
allows access to restricted Java classes via JavaScript, making it
possible to escalate the privileges of the Java-applet.  The other
problem is that Konqueror fails to correctly restrict access to
certain Java classes from the Java-applet itself.

See http://www.kde.org/info/security/advisory-20041220-1.txt for the
full advisory.
