Description Marc Schoenefeld 2008-03-06 12:59:29 UTC
A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment image parsing library may allow
an untrusted application or applet that is downloaded from a website to elevate
its privileges. For example, the application or applet may grant itself
permissions to read and write local files or execute local applications that are
accessible to the user running the untrusted application or applet.

Two vulnerabilities in the color management library may allow an untrusted
applet or application or applet to cause the Java Runtime Environment to crash,
which is a type of Denial of Service (DoS).
