|CVSS SCORE||9.0, (AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:C)|
The specific flaw exists within the NEWT library due to the way that one of its classes uses reflection in its main method. When the class is used as the main-class in a JNLP file, this vulnerability can allow an attacker to call the main method of any trusted class with arbitrary arguments and with a trusted call stack, which in some cases can lead to execution of arbitrary code. The NEWT library can be installed without warnings because it is signed with a valid certificate recognized by the java install.
Oracle has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More details can be found at:
