For example, an applet may grant itself permissions to read and write local files or execute local applications that are accessible to the user running the untrusted applet. (CVE-2007-0243)

- Two vulnerabilities in the Java Runtime Environment may independently allow an untrusted applet to access data in other applets. (CVE-2006-6737 / CVE-2006-6736)

- Two vulnerabilities in the Java(TM) Runtime Environment with serialization may independently allow an untrusted applet or application to elevate its privileges.
