6u14 b02Fixed
With latest drop of PIT bundles, Feb 12, signed applets using JNLP will fail to load by throwing security exceptions while trying to do some insecure operation e.g. trying to read system property user.home. Since all FX applets against 6u10 and above, are using JNLP(default behavior under dtfx.js) , so it's going to break all the signed FX applets

Steps tp reproduce:
Try loading the simple applets(non FX) below with latest PIT bundles
Signed Applet not using JNLP(will work fine)

Same signed Applet using JNLP(will throw security exceptions)
