Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200506-14 (Sun and Blackdown Java: Applet privilege escalation)

Both Sun's and Blackdown's JDK and JRE may allow untrusted applets     to elevate privileges.

Impact :

A remote attacker could embed a malicious Java applet in a web     page and entice a victim to view it. This applet can then bypass     security restrictions and execute any command or access any file with     the rights of the user running the web browser.

Workaround :

There are no known workarounds at this time.
