from the Mitre CVE DB:

CVE-2006-6731:Multiple buffer overflows in Sun Java Development
Kit (JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 7 and
earlier, Java System Development Kit (SDK) and JRE 1.4.2_12 and
earlier 1.4.x versions, and SDK and JRE 1.3.1_18 and earlier
allow attackers to develop Java applets that read, write, or
execute local files, possibly related to (1) integer overflows in
the Java_sun_awt_image_ImagingLib_convolveBI, awt_parseRaster,
and awt_parseColorModel functions; (2) a stack overflow in
the Java_sun_awt_image_ImagingLib_lookupByteRaster function;
and (3) improper handling of certain negative values in the
Java_sun_font_SunLayoutEngine_nativeLayout function.

CVE-2006-6736: Unspecified vulnerability in Sun Java Development Kit
(JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 6 and earlier,
Java System Development Kit (SDK) and JRE 1.4.2_12 and earlier 1.4.x
versions, and SDK and JRE 1.3.1_18 and earlier allows attackers to
attackers to use untrusted applets to 'access data in other applets,'
aka 'The second issue.'

CVE-2006-6737: Unspecified vulnerability in Sun Java Development Kit
(JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update 5 and earlier,
Java System Development Kit (SDK) and JRE 1.4.2_10 and earlier 1.4.x
versions, and SDK and JRE 1.3.1_18 and earlier allows attackers to
use untrusted applets to 'access data in other applets,' aka 'The
first issue.'

CVE-2006-6745: Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Sun Java
Development Kit (JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 5.0 Update
7 and earlier, and Java System Development Kit (SDK) and JRE 1.4.2_12
and earlier 1.4.x versions, allow attackers to develop Java applets or
applications that are able to gain privileges, related to serialization
in JRE.
