Internet security issues

Ric Ford, on MacInTouch, notes two articles describing security issues:

An article from c't details how a potential problem with Acrobat PDF documents accessed from the web: "The problem: PDF files can be changed in a way that for example a harmless link (like "next page") starts an operating system command."

An article from Princeton describes a possible security leak with some Java systems, although it does not affect Netscape or Explorer browsers.
