Sun Alert 103071 Java Runtime Environment (JRE) May Allow Untrusted Applets or Applications to Display An Oversized Window so that the Warning Banner is Not Visible to User

Guest Author
Product: Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition

When an untrusted applet or application displays a window, the Java Runtime Environment includes a warning banner inside the window to indicate that the applet or application is untrusted. A defect in the Java Runtime Environment may allow an untrusted applet or application that is downloaded from a malicious website to display a window that exceeds the size of a user's screen so that the warning banner is not visible to the user.

Sun acknowledges with thanks, Giorgio Maone from InformAction for bringing this issue to our attention.
