The vulnerability allows a programmer to send a Java program called an applet over the Internet to someone else's computer. Once in, the program can delete a computer's files or make a host of other equally troubling problems. A malicious Java applet, "if hosted on a Web site, could cause any action to be taken on the computer of a visiting user that the user himself could take," Microsoft said about the vulnerability today. "This could include, for example, creating, deleting or modifying files; sending data to or receiving data from a Web site; or reformatting the hard drive," Microsoft said.
