Oracle Java SE 7 <= Update 10 Remote Code Execution

High

Synopsis

The remote Windows host contains a programming platform that is affected by a code execution vulnerability

Description

This version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java SE or Java for Business installed on the remote host is 7 Update 10 or earlier and is, therefore, potentially affected by the following security issues:

- An unspecified issue exists in the Libraries component. (CVE-2012-3174)

- An error exists in the 'MBeanInstantiator.findClass' method that could allow remote, arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-0422)

Note that, according the advisory, these issues apply to client deployments of Java only and can only be exploited through untrusted 'Java Web Start' applications and untrusted Java applets

Solution

Update to JDK / JRE 7 Update 11 or later and, if necessary, remove any affected versions.
