Apple Safari Disable Java Preference Failure Weakness

Apple Safari is prone to a weakness that may result in the execution of potentially malicious Java applets. This issue results from a design error.

This weakness arises because the application fails to properly check a security setting. Potentially malicious Java applets can be loaded from a web page regardless of the setting of the 'Enable Java' preference.

Versions prior to Safari 3.0.3 Beta and Safari 3.0.3 Beta for Windows are vulnerable to this issue.
