CVE-2007-0012 J2RE DoS with undefined name attribute
Last modified: 2010-12-22 15:50:41 EST
According to original bug report:
If an applet is encoded into the data parameter of an object tag with an
undefined "name" attribute, and is then passed to Internet Explorer,
then when the application is unencoded and passed in turn to the JVM it
causes a null pointer exception to occur in jpiexp32.dll.
There is no proof that this affects anything other than jpiexp32.dll, which is Windows-only. We also no longer ship java-1.5.0-sun so we have no products where this might be an issue, if it was proven to exist.
