The remote Windows host has an application that may be prone to a
buffer overflow attack.
There is reportedly a buffer overflow in the Java Web Start utility
distributed with the version of Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
installed on the remote host. If an attacker can convince a user on
the affected host to open a specially crafted JNLP file, arbitrary
code could be executed subject to the user's privileges.
