Description

Java Web Start in Sun JDK and JRE 6 Update 2 and earlier, JDK and JRE 5.0 Update 12 and earlier, and SDK and JRE 1.4.2_15 and earlier does not properly enforce access restrictions for untrusted applications, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to obtain sensitive information (the Java Web Start cache location) via an untrusted application, aka "three vulnerabilities."
