Multiple vulnerabilities in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE)
component in Oracle Java SE 7 Update 6 and earlier allow remote
attackers to execute arbitrary code via a crafted applet that bypasses
SecurityManager restrictions by (1) using
com.sun.beans.finder.ClassFinder.findClass and leveraging an exception
with the forName method to access restricted classes from arbitrary
packages such as sun.awt.SunToolkit, then (2) using "reflection with a
trusted immediate caller" to leverage the getField method to access
and modify private fields, as exploited in the wild in August 2012
using Gondzz.class and Gondvv.class.
