Detail

Product: Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE)

A security vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) related to deserializing calendar objects may allow an untrusted applet or application to escalate 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.

Sun acknowledges with thanks, Sami Koivu for bringing this issue to our attention.

State: Resolved

Title: Sun Java Runtime Environment 'Calendar.readObject' Bug Lets Remote Applets Gain Elevated Privileges
Description: The Java Runtime Environment (JRE) for Sun JDK and JRE 6 Update 10 and earlier; JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 16 and earlier; and SDK and JRE 1.4.2_18 and earlier does not properly enforce context of ZoneInfo objects during deserialization, which allows remote attackers to run untrusted applets and applications in a privileged context, as demonstrated by "deserializing Calendar objects".
