JavaSoft will post a bug fix for a flaw in version 1.1.2 of its Java Development Kit (JDK) next week, when it ships version 1.1.3. The bug allowed a Java applet to search and locate information stored on a browser's address space. This would potentially enable hackers to collect information from a user visiting a Web site, where the hacker had installed the applet. The bug was discovered by IT researchers at the University of Washington, but was not present in earlier releases of the JDK.
