Description

A design issue exists in QuickTime for Java. This may allow Java applets to bypass security checks in order to read and write process memory. By enticing a user to visit a web page containing a maliciously crafted Java applet, an attacker can trigger the issue which may lead to arbitrary code execution. This update addresses the issue by performing additional validation of Java applets. Credit to Adam Gowdiak for reporting this issue.
