Last modified: 2015-08-22 12:29:59 EDT
A buffer overflow vulnerability in Java Web Start may allow an untrusted Java
Web Start application that is downloaded from a website to elevate its
privileges. For example, an untrusted Java Web Start application may grant
itself permissions to read and write local files or execute local applications
that are accessible to the user running the untrusted application.
