Apple Security Update: APPLE-SA-2006-12-19 Security Update 2006-008

Detail
======

Java applets may use QuickTime for Java to obtain the images rendered on screen 
by embedded QuickTime objects and upload them to the originating web site. When 
this facility is used in conjunction with Quartz Composer, it becomes possible 
to capture images that may contain local information. This update addresses the 
issue by disallowing Quartz Composer compositions in unsigned Java applets. 
Quartz Composer compositions continue to function locally. Applications and signed 
Java applets that utilize QuickTime and QuickTime for Java are unaffected. This 
issue does not affect systems prior to Mac OS X v10.4. It also does not affect 
the Windows platform. Credit to Geoff Beier for reporting this issue.
