Microsoft Virtual Machine - Arbitrary Java Codebase Execution

An attacker may gain read access on remote systems by specifying a custom codebase in a Java applet, and delivering to the victim(s) via HTML email or a website. Any arbitrary codebase can be referenced by a java applet that was loaded by an <OBJECT> tag in conjunction with a jar file when using Microsoft Internet Explorer or Outlook/Outlook Express. This allows for the possibility of any known file to be read by a remote attacker.
