typically in clients running sandboxed Java Web Start applications or
sandboxed Java applets, that load and run untrusted code (e.g., code that
comes from the internet) and rely on the Java sandbox for security. This

that load and run only trusted code (e.g., code installed by an
administrator). CVSS v3.0 Base Score 6.5 (Confidentiality impacts).
