Synopsis :

The remote host has a version of Java that is affected by multiple
vulnerabilities.

Description :

The remote Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.8 host has a Java runtime that is
missing the Java for OS X 2013-001 update, which updates the Java
version to 1.6.0_41. It is, therefore, affected by several security
vulnerabilities, the most serious of which may allow an untrusted Java
applet to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the current user
outside the Java sandbox.
