IBM redbook on Java 2 Newwork Security gives a very good understanding of the topics you asked for. The issue is a security issue and so you should go through security related information. I am giving a few security related sites, they MIGHT help you. But i have gone through IBM redbook on Java 2 Newwork Security and its worth having one in your bookshelf.

Security related links:

Now coming to your stuff!
Malicious code can be an Applet running with out proper security causing issues like eating up your CPU on client resources, denial of service due to numerous threads created by an applet on the client machine.
Website attacks can be installing sniffers on the website and sniffing all the information etc. I would be glad to know more information for other ranchers about this issue, and would like the other SCWCD ppl. to comment on this!
thanks,
Ram Dhan Yadav K

BTW, how is Malicious code related to servlets??? Servlet would be developed by the company itself and would run on company's servers after testing. It's not like a company will download any servlet from the web and put it on the webserver!!!

Hi Vishali,
You can actually embed the Applet code in servlets and run your applications. As far as my limited knowledge goes on this issues, malicious code attacks are basically related to affect/damage client resources.
I would be glad to read any others comments.
thanks,
