Synopsis :

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

Description :

The remote Mac OS X host has a version of Java for Mac OS X 10.6 that
is missing Update 14, which updates the Java version to 1.6.0_43. It
is, therefore, affected by two 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.

Note that an exploit for CVE-2013-1493 has been observed in the wild.
