A security vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) related to deserializing calendar objects 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.
