    <p>
    Sun and Blackdown both provide implementations of the Java
    Development Kit (JDK) and Java Runtime Environment (JRE).
    </p>

  <description>
    <p>
    Adam Gowdiak discovered multiple vulnerabilities in the Java
    Runtime Environment's Reflection APIs that may allow untrusted applets
    to elevate privileges.
    </p>
  </description>
  <impact type="normal">
    <p>
    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.
    </p>
  </impact>
  <workaround>
    <p>
    There are no known workarounds at this time.
    </p>
  </workaround>
  <resolution>
    <p>
    All Sun JDK users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-java/sun-jdk-1.4.2.09&quot;</code>
    <p>
    All Sun JRE users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-java/sun-jre-bin-1.4.2.09&quot;</code>
    <p>
    All Blackdown JDK users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-java/blackdown-jdk-1.4.2.03&quot;</code>
    <p>
    All Blackdown JRE users should upgrade to the latest version:
    </p>
    <code>
    # emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=dev-java/blackdown-jre-1.4.2.03&quot;</code>
    <p>
    Note to SPARC and PPC users: There is no stable secure
    Blackdown Java for the SPARC or PPC architectures. Affected users on
    the PPC architecture should consider switching to the IBM Java packages
    (ibm-jdk-bin and ibm-jre-bin). Affected users on the SPARC should
    remove the package until a SPARC package is released.
