CR 6801071:
A security vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment SOCKSproxy implementation may allow an untrusted applet or Java Web Startapplication to determine the username of the user running the applet orapplication.

A second vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment proxymechanism implementation may allow an untrusted applet or Java Web Start application to obtain browser cookies and leverage thosecookies to hijack sessions.

CR 6801497:
A security vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment proxymechanism implementation may allow an untrusted applet or Java WebStart application to make non-authorized socket or URL connections tohosts other than the origin host.

Sun acknowledges, with thanks, Gregory Fleischer for bringing the firsttwo issues to our attention.
