Description Marc Schoenefeld 2007-10-07 08:12:24 EDT
Sun describes a flaw at: 

http://sunsolve.sun.com/search/document.do?assetkey=1-26-103071-1

When an untrusted applet or application displays a window, the Java Runtime
Environment includes a warning banner inside the window to indicate that the
applet or application is untrusted. A defect in the Java Runtime Environment may
allow an untrusted applet or application that is downloaded from a malicious
website to display a window that exceeds the size of a user's screen so that the
warning banner is not visible to the user.
