Detail

Product: Sun Java Standard Edition (Java SE)

A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) may allowan untrusted Java application that is launched through the command lineto escalate privileges. For example, the untrusted Java application maygrant itself permissions to read and write local files or execute localapplications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted Javaapplication.

This vulnerability cannot be exploited by an applet or Java Web Startapplication.
