PCworld: "Microsoft has issued a "critical" security alert for its Java virtual machine (JVM), saying a flaw in the product could let hackers view
users' information while they surf the Web.
Microsoft is one of several vendors that make a JVM, a program that allows applications written in Java to run on any computer
regardless of its operating system. The company has included its JVM with Windows 98, Windows Me, and Windows 2000, as well
as its Internet Explorer browser up to version 5.5."
