The remote host contains a runtime environment that contains methods
that can aid in further attacks.
The version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.x
installed on the remote host is earlier than Update 35. It, therefore,
potentially contains two methods that do not properly restrict access to
information about other classes. Specifically, the 'getField' and
'getMethod' methods in the 'sun.awt.SunToolkit' class provided by the
bundled SunToolKit can be used to obtain any field or method of a class
- even private fields and methods.
Please note this issue is not directly exploitable, rather it can aid in
attacks against other, directly exploitable vulnerabilities, such as
that found in CVE-2012-4681.
