updates.

Description :

The Sun Java Plugin capability in Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE)
1.4.2_01, 1.4.2_04, and possibly earlier versions, does not properly
restrict access between JavaScript and Java applets during data
transfer, which allows remote attackers to load unsafe classes and
execute arbitrary code.
