Description

The BMP image parser in Sun Java Development Kit (JDK) before 1.5.0_11-b03 and 1.6.x before 1.6.0_01-b06, and Sun Java Runtime Environment in JDK and JRE 6, JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 10 and earlier, SDK and JRE 1.4.2_14 and earlier, and SDK and JRE 1.3.1_19 and earlier, when running on Unix/Linux systems, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (JVM hang) via untrusted applets or applications that open arbitrary local files via a crafted BMP file, such as /dev/tty.
