|Vulnerability Description||An out of bounds memory access vulnerability has been reported in Oracle Java SE. The vulnerability is due to an issue with insufficient validation of an index value prior to array access. This can lead to an off by one condition in the glyphStorage heap array object. A remote unauthenticated attacker can exploit this vulnerability by persuading users to load a malicious web page containing a Java applet. Successful exploitation could cause memory corruption that may lead to arbitrary code execution in the security context of the logged in user, or terminate the application resulting in a denial of service condition.|
