|CVSS SCORE||10.0, (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C)|
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to violate security policies on vulnerable installations of Sun Java Runtime. User interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target must run a malicious applet.
The specific flaw allows malicious applets to connect to network addresses other than the originating applet and client IPs. A handcrafted applet can override compile time checks to prevent compilation of a mutable InetAddress subclass. This results in the ability to circumvent the Applet SecurityManager restictions.
Sun Microsystems has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
