This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Unix host contains a programming platform that is
potentially 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 51, 6 Update 71,
or 5 Update 61. It is, therefore, potentially affected by security
issues in the following components :

- 2D
- Beans
- CORBA
- Deployment
- Hotspot
- Install
- JAAS
- JavaFX
- JAXP
- JNDI
- JSSE
- Libraries

Solution :

Update to JDK / JRE 7 Update 51, 6 Update 71 or 5 Update 61 or later
and, if necessary, remove any affected versions.

Note that an Extended Support contract with Oracle is needed to obtain
JDK / JRE 5 Update 61 or later or 6 Update 71 or later.
