-- Vulnerability Details:
This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on
vulnerable installations of the Oracle Sun Java Runtime. User
interaction is required to exploit this vulnerability in that the target
must visit a malicious page or open a malicious file.

The specific flaw exists within the JP2IEXP.dll browser plugin. The
module creates a window hook when an applet is instantiated within the
context of a browser. If the underlying DOM element is cloned and the
parent object removed, a dangling reference can exist. When the module
attempts to walk the relationship list to call the window hook, the
process can be made to jump into uninitialized heap memory. This can be
exploited by an attacker to execute code under the context of the user
running the browser.

-- Vendor Response:
Oracle has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More
