VUPEN Security Research - Oracle Java ICC Profile "scrn" Tag Integer Overflow Code Execution Vulnerability

http://www.vupen.com/english/research.php


I. BACKGROUND
---------------------

"Java is a programming language and computing platform released by Sun
Microsystems (now Oracle). It is the underlying technology that powers
state-of-the-art programs including utilities, games, and business
