Problem description

There exists a problem in all versions of Netscape from 4.0 to 4.74 with Java enabled. Under certain conditions, Netscape can be turned into a server that serves files on your local hard drive that Netscape has read access to and remote people can access it by connecting their web client to port 8080 on your machine if they know the IP address. This vulnerability has been fixed in Netscape 4.75.
