Impact: Multiple vulnerabilities in Java 1.6.0_35
Description: Multiple vulnerabilities exist in Java 1.6.0_35, the most serious of which may allow an untrusted Java applet to execute arbitrary code outside the Java sandbox. Visiting a web page containing a maliciously crafted untrusted Java applet may lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the current user. These issues are addressed by updating to Java version 1.6.0_37. Further information is available via the Java website at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/releasenotes-136954.html
