More Java Problems for APC


It seems like problems with APC are going to come back to the masses yet again. Remember last year? Well, it looks like strange things are afoot at the Java ranch again. Patch away. This kind of goes a long way toward showing you that appliances are not bullet proof.

Patch away 🙂 APC Security Advisory for PowerChute Business Edition 7.x & PowerChute Network Shutdown 2.2.x Java Runtime Environment Unsigned Applet Privilege EscalationA problem exists with multiple versions of Sun's Java Runtime Environment (JRE) that may allow an unsigned applet to escalate its privileges.
