Sun Java JRE Large Temporary File Creation Vulnerability
SECUNIA ADVISORY ID:
Sun Java SDK 1.4.x
Sun Java JRE 1.5.x / 5.x
Sun Java JRE 1.4.x
Sun Java JDK 1.5.x
Marc Schoenefeld has discovered a vulnerability in Sun Java JRE (Java
Runtime Environment), which can be exploited by malicious people to
cause a DoS (Denial of Service).
The vulnerability is caused due to missing restrictions on temporary
file creation. This can be exploited by a malicious applet to create
large files in the temporary folder via e.g. the "Font.createFont()"
Successful exploitation causes a vulnerable system to run out of disk
The vulnerability has been confirmed in JDK 5.0 Update 6 and has also
been reported in SDK 1.4.2_11 on the Microsoft Windows platform.
Remove files created by malicious applets in the temporary folder
"%temp%" when running out of disk space after an attack.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
