Comment 1 Marc Schoenefeld 2008-03-06 06:32:11 EST
A security vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) with the
processing of XSLT transformations may allow an untrusted applet or application
that is downloaded from a website to elevate its privileges. For example, an
applet may read certain unauthorized URL resources (such as some files and web
pages) or potentially execute arbitrary code. This vulnerability may also be
exploited to create a Denial-of-Service (DoS) condition by causing the JRE to crash.
