Description Marc Schoenefeld 2008-07-09 06:46:44 EDT
Sunalert, 238905, First Issue

Buffer overflow vulnerabilities in Java Web Start may allow an untrusted Java
Web Start application 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.
