The remote host has a version of Java that contains methods that can
aid in further attacks.
The remote Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.8 host is running a version of Java
for Mac OS X that is missing update 2012-005, which updates the Java
version to 1.6.0_35. As such, it potentially contains two methods
that do not properly restrict access to information about other
classes. Specifically, the 'getField' and 'getMethod' methods in the
'sun.awt.SunToolkit' class provided by the bundled SunToolKit can be
used to obtain any field or method of a class - even private fields
Please note this issue is not directly exploitable, rather it can aid
in attacks against other, directly exploitable vulnerabilities, such
as that found in CVE-2012-4681.
