This vulnerability allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable installations of Oracle Java. 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 JavaFX WebPage class. A descendant class can overwrite the getPage method with a custom pointer into the native function. This could lead to remote code execution under the context of the process.
