Sun Java JRE Plug-in Capability Arbitrary Package Access

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host has an application that is affected by
a security bypass vulnerability.

Description :

The remote host is using a vulnerable version of Sun Java Runtime
Plug-in, a web browser addon used to display Java applets. Two
security issues have been reported in the remote version of this
product :

- An untrusted applet may escalate its privileges in
order to read, write or execute files on the remote system.

- An untrusted applet may interfere with trusted applets
loaded on the same page.

A remote attacker could exploit this by tricking a user into
visiting a maliciously crafted web page.
