Java security hole could put some servers at risk

Author: JT Smith

ZDNet reports: "Sun Microsystems has revealed a security hole in several versions of a critical component of Java that could allow an attacker to run harmful programs on a victim's computer.
The vulnerability appears in versions of the Java Runtime Environment that Sun has released for servers running Windows, Linux and Sun's Solaris operating systems. However, the company asserts that the flaw doesn't affect the Java components included in Microsoft's Internet Explorer and Netscape's Navigator browsers."
