Detail

Product: Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE)

A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) with unpacking applets and Java Web Start applications using the "unpack200" JAR unpacking utility 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.
