Apple has issued an update for Java for Mac OS X. This fixes some vulnerabilities, which can be exploited by malicious people to bypass certain security restrictions, manipulate certain data, disclose potentially sensitive information, cause a DoS (Denial of Service), or to compromise a user's system.
1) An error in the handling of mediaLibImage objects can be exploited to cause an out-of-bounds memory access and potentially execute arbitrary code when a user e.g. visits a web page containing a specially crafted Java applet.
2) A signedness error when drawing windows can be exploited to corrupt memory and potentially execute arbitrary code when a user e.g. visits a web page containing a specially crafted Java applet.
