Windows falls open to Java VM threat


Recommended Posts

Microsoft has warned of three new flaws affecting its software, the most serious of which would allow an attacker to gain full control of a user's PC using a Java applet.  

The three warnings, all issued on Wednesday, involve the Microsoft Virtual Machine for running Java applets on Windows; a cross-site scripting bug in a component of Windows 2000 and Windows NT 4.0; and a denial-of-service bug affecting Proxy Server 2.0 and ISA Server.
