Oracle Java JRE Unsupported Version Detection (Unix)

This script is Copyright (C) 2013-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote host contains one or more unsupported versions of the
Oracle Java JRE.

Description :

According to its self-reported version number, at least one
installation of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java JRE on the remote host
is no longer supported.

Lack of support implies that no new security patches for the product
will be released by the vendor. As a result, it is likely to contain
security vulnerabilities.

Note that Oracle does provide support contracts under the 'Oracle
Lifetime Support' program. If the detected JRE is supported under this
program, this may be a false positive.

Solution :

Upgrade to a version of Oracle Java JRE that is currently supported.

Risk factor :

Critical / CVSS Base Score : 10.0
