Synopsis :

The remote Unix host contains a programming platform that is affected
by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java SE or Java for Business
installed on the remote host is earlier than 7 Update 5 / 6 Update 33
/ 5.0 Update 36 / 1.4.2_38 and is, therefore, potentially affected by
security issues in the following components :

- 2D
- Deployment
- Hotspot
- Swing
- CORBA
- Libraries
- JAXP
- Security
- Networking
- Java Runtime Environment
