Description Marc Schoenefeld 2008-07-09 06:38:47 EDT
A buffer overflow security vulnerability with the processing of fonts in the
Java Runtime Environment (JRE) may allow an untrusted applet or application to
elevate its privileges. For example, an untrusted applet may grant itself
permissions to read and write local files or execute local applications that are
accessible to the user running the untrusted applet.
