Download Description

This Fix Pack contains an important fix for Contributor macros. It addresses a problem with running multiple Contributor macros when at least one of the macros contains the "execute Analyst macro command."

This Fix Pack also addresses a serious security vulnerability (CVE-2010-4476) which can cause the Java Virtual Machine to enter an infinite loop. This vulnerability can cause the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) to hang, enter an infinite loop, or crash when converting "2.2250738585072012e-308" to a binary floating-point number. The result can be a denial of service exposure. This same problem can occur if the number is written without scientific notation (that is, using all of the 324 decimal places). Any Java program that uses the Double.parseDouble method is at risk of this vulnerability
