Description

A design issue exists in QuickTime for Java, which may allow a malicious website to capture a client's screen content. 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 the disclosure of sensitive information. This update addresses the issue by performing a more accurate access control check.
