    new bug in Netscape


    there is new bug reported in netscape that allows java applets to view the
    contents of a users hard drive. the functions used are netscape.net.urlconnection
    and netscape.net.urlinputstream. I am unable to find information on these
    functions anywhere. Does anybody know about this, what do they do, what
    can they do. Any information would be appreciated.

    P.S. I am asking this information not to exploit this bug but for protection.

    cheers

    A similar bug is reported in IE 5.0 as well. WE are trying to find a remedy.
    Will keep you posted.
    Cheers
