Multiple buffer overflows in Java SE Development Kit (JDK) and Java
Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 12 and earlier allow remote
attackers to access files or execute arbitrary code via (1) a crafted
PNG image that triggers an integer overflow during memory allocation
for display on the splash screen, aka CR 6804996; and (2) a crafted
GIF image from which unspecified values are used in calculation of
offsets, leading to object-pointer corruption, aka CR 6804997.
