Description :

Pluf has discovered a vulnerability in Sun Java JDK/SDK, which
potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a
user's system.

The jar tool does not check properly if the files to be extracted have
the string '../' on its names, so it's possible for an attacker to
create a malicious jar file in order to overwrite arbitrary files
within the filesystem.
