Oracle Java SE Multiple Vulnerabilities (April 2014 CPU) (Unix)

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 8 Update 5, 7 Update 55,
6 Update 75, or 5 Update 65. It is, therefore, potentially affected by security
issues in the following components :

- 2D
- AWT
- Deployment
- Hotspot
- JAX-WS
- JAXB
- JAXP
- JNDI
- JavaFX
- Javadoc
- Libraries
- Scripting
- Security
- Sound

JDK / JRE 5 Update 65 or later or 6 Update 75 or later.
