Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has a version of Sun's Java Runtime
Environment that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.

Description :

According to its version number, the Sun JRE running on the remote
host has a buffer overflow issue that can be triggered when parsing a
GIF image with the image width in an image block set to 0. If an
attacker can trick a user on the affected system into processing a
specially crafted image file, say by visiting a malicious website, he
may be able to leverage this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the
affected system subject to the user's privileges.
