to escalate privileges. (263428)

- A vulnerability with verifying HMAC-based XML digital
signatures in the XML Digital Signature implementation
may allow authentication to be bypassed. (263429)

- An integer overflow vulnerability with unpacking applets
and Java Web start applications using the 'unpack200' JAR
unpacking utility may allow an untrusted applet to
escalate privileges. (263488)

- An issue with parsing XML data may allow a remote client
to create a denial of service condition. (263489)

by the Java Web Start ActiveX control can be leveraged
to execute arbitrary code. (264648)
