Description Tomas Hoger 2011-07-01 04:57:34 EDT
Omair Majid discovered an information disclosure flaw in the JNLP (Java Network Launching Protocol) implementation used in IcedTea and IcedTea-web. An unsigned Java Web Start application or Java Applet could use this flaw to determine a path to the cache directory (/home/<username>/.netx/cache/) used to store downloaded jars for Web Start application or Applet by querying class's ClassLoader properties. This discloses full path to user's home directory on the local system and user's login name.
