Sun has released update 4 for Java SE 6, which fixes some 370 bugs including several security issues. Although Sun usually delays publishing details of vulnerabilities for a few months, the changelog for the update mentions a stack overflow in the sun.font.TrueTypeFont.getTableBuffer class.

The update also fixes several flaws which can cause system crashes. It remains unclear whether these could be exploited to compromise systems remotely. Users are advised to install the new version as soon as possible.
