My bank has a Java applet that requests "unrestricted access" to my computer.
Obviously, this seems a little 1984 to me... What happens when you allow this? Is the applet allowed
- (Root) access to the entire filesystem?
- Permission to install software?
Is there any difference between allowing "unrestricted access" and just "access" to an applet?
BTW, I'm aware of this question on the same topic.
