CVE-2009-2670

MEDIUM

Description

The audio system in Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in JDK and JRE 6 before Update 15, and JDK and JRE 5.0 before Update 20, does not prevent access to java.lang.System properties by (1) untrusted applets and (2) Java Web Start applications, which allows context-dependent attackers to obtain sensitive information by reading these properties.
