        Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows an unauthenticated 
        attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise 
        Java SE. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person
        other than the attacker and while the vulnerability is in Java SE,

        Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows an unauthenticated 
        attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise
