Researcher Finds Five New Java Sandbox Vulnerabilities

Prompted by Oracle Rejection, Researcher Finds Five New Java Sandbox Vulnerabilities

Quote:
Giving a prolific bug hunter an excuse to go poking deeper into a potential security issue generally doesn’t end well or the vendor in question—in this case Oracle. Polish security firm Security Explorations, noteworthy for its Java security research, said today it reported five new vulnerabilities in Java SE 7 to Oracle. If combined, researcher Adam Gowdiak said, they can be used to gain a complete bypass of the Java sandbox.

The deeper look stemmed from a recent submission the company made to Oracle on Feb. 25 of two vulnerabilities that when used in conjunction could also bypass the sandbox. Gowdiak said Oracle dismissed one of the issues he reported, which he labels Issue 54, and called it “allowed behavior,” rather than a vulnerability. It confirmed the other.

I wonder who the ex-employes of Sun Micro are working for. I can't remember any time anything has been under such a attack for so long and often. Some body is poking holes in Oracles dam faster than they can plug them. Seem like they are running out of fingers to do the plugging.
