    12 Jan 2007 ~ "Attackers have released exploit code targeting two previously patched flaws in Sun Microsystems' Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and Java Software Development Kit (SDK). The flaws could allow an attacker to remotely execute code on a Windows, Linux or Solaris system. Sun issued patches for both vulnerabilities in December. The JRE component allows JavaScript code to be executed on most operating systems, including Windows, Mac OS, Linux and Unix... Java is inherently a more secure system, because JRE uses so-called sandboxing that allows it to operate as a virtual machine to block access to other parts of the system... As developers create JavaScript applications that require more capabilities, they begin to call up .dll files from the system. As soon as the programs reach outside the virtual machine for system files, the security protection of the sandbox is negated..."

    January 18, 2007 ~ "...When running a Java applet from a web page using a vulnerable version of Java Runtime, an applet exploiting the vulnerability may escape Java's sandbox. This means that the Java applet would have exactly the same access to the file system and process execution as any native application. Java vulnerabilities have been actively used by malicious web pages in the past, so it is quite possible that this new vulnerability will also be used. So do make sure that your Java runtime is up to date, instructions are available at Sun Advisory #102760*.
    Note: Sun provides links to J2SE 5.0 Update 10 in their advisory. As we posted earlier, version 6.0 is also available**..."
