CR 6557220: Buffer overflow vulnerabilities in Java Web Start may allowanuntrusted Java Web Start application to elevate its privileges. Forexample, an untrusted Java Web Start application may grant itselfpermissions to read and write local files or execute local applicationsthat are accessible to the user running the untrusted application.

CR 6703909: A vulnerability in Java Web Start may allow an untrustedJava WebStart application downloaded from a website to create arbitrary fileswith the permissions of the user running the untrusted Java Web Startapplication.

CR 6704077: A vulnerability in Java Web Start may allow an untrustedJava WebStart application downloaded from a website to create or deletearbitrary files with the permissions of the user running the untrustedJava Web Start application.

CR 6704074: A vulnerability in Java Web Start may allow an untrustedJava WebStart application to determine the location of the Java Web Start cache.

Sun acknowledges with thanks, the following:

Buffer overflow vulnerabilities:
