    Available Exploits 


    The Java Web Start Installer in Sun Java SE in JDK and JRE 6 before Update 17 does not properly use security model permissions when removing installer extensions. This can potentially allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code by modifying a certain JNLP file to have a URL field that points to an unintended trusted application.
