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

The specific flaw exists within the implementation of the color profile
parser. When processing a the 'devs' tag structure out of a color
profile, the parser will read a 32-bit integer and use it to calculate
the size for a memory allocation. Due to the result being larger than 32
bits, an integer overflow will occur. This will lead to code execution
under the context of the application.

-- Vendor Response:
Sun Microsystems has issued an update to correct this vulnerability. More
details can be found at:
