Detail

Product: Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE)

Multiple buffer overflow vulnerabilities in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) image processing code (CR 6726779), its handling of GIF images (CR 6766136) as well as its font processing (CRs 6733336 and 6751322) may allow an untrusted applet or Java Web Start application to elevate its 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.
