I am almost certainly sure that when you open a page using the file:// URL
(ie. a page local to your hard disk) and when this page contains an applet
which is also local to your hard disk the "connect back only to server
sending this applet" does not apply.

It is reasons like these that make me think that Java on the client side is
dead.  It would be cook if you could sign an applet with your PGP / GPG
