CVE-2011-2513

Published: 20 July 2011

The Java Network Launching Protocol (JNLP) implementation in IcedTea6 1.9.x before 1.9.9 and before 1.8.9, and IcedTea-Web 1.1.x before 1.1.1 and before 1.0.4, allows remote attackers to obtain the username and full path of the home and cache directories by accessing properties of the ClassLoader.

From the Ubuntu security team

Omair Majid discovered that an unsigned Web Start application or applet could determine the path to the cache directory used to store downloaded class and jar files by querying class loader properties. This could allow a remote attacker to discover a user's name and home directory path.
