java cache

Discussion in 'Java' started by Matthijs Blaas, Apr 4, 2004.

  1. I found that when an applet is cached (using Sun jvm), it's placed in the
    Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javapi\jar\ folder. The files are saved with
    somekind of checksum added to them (fx: file1.jar-md5checksum?.zip). Does
    this prevent hackers from modifying the applet and have the website execute
    a modified applet instead of the original one? If so, is this security
    mechanism provided with every jvm? (ie MS, IBM etc?)

    Does anyone know some more about this?

    Thanks in advance!
