The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

It was discovered that the JNLP SecurityManager in IcedTea for Java
OpenJDK in some instances failed to properly apply the intended
scurity policy in its checkPermission method. This could allow an
attacker execute code with privileges that should have been prevented.
(CVE-2010-4351).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
