Use the approach in HTML: don't allow the applets the ability to perform
dangerous acts. If you want to do more, then explicitly download and
install a plugin. That way you have control and you have to perform an
explicit install before you're exposed.
The only applet technology I know of that does this is the Tk plugin, which
actually removes all dangerous commands from the interpreter before running
the applet, so even if it's hostile it has no access to anything outside the
