Detail

Product: Sun Java Standard Edition (Java SE)

A vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment relating to scripting languagesupport may allow an untrusted applet or application to elevate itsprivileges. For example, an untrusted applet may grant itselfpermissions to read and write local files or execute local applicationsthat are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet.

A second vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment relating to scriptinglanguage support may allow an untrusted applet to access informationfrom another applet.
