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 9 / 6 Update 37
/ 5.0 Update 38 / 1.4.2_40 and is, therefore, potentially affected by
security issues in the following components :

- 2D
- Beans
- Concurrency
- Deployment
- Hotspot
- JAX-WS
- JMX
- JSSE
- Libraries
- Networking
- Security
