DescriptionAccording to its version number, the Sun JRE installed on the remote host has two buffer overflow issues that may allow an untrusted applet to elevate its privileges to, for example, read or write local files or to execute local applications subject to the privileges of the user running the applet.
In addition, another set of vulnerabilities may allow an untrusted applet to access data in other applets.
