Product: Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition

Two buffer overflow vulnerabilities in the Java Runtime Environment may independently allow an untrusted applet to elevate its privileges. For example, an 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.

Sun acknowledges, with thanks, Chris Evans, for bringing these issues to our attention.
