Mac OS X : Java for OS X 2013-004

This script is Copyright (C) 2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


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 2013-004 update, which updates the Java
version to 1.6.0_51. It is, therefore, affected by multiple 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.
