Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a programming platform that is
affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java SE or Java for Business
installed on the remote host is prior to 8 Update 111, 7 Update 121,
or 6 Update 131. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Libraries
subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote
attacker to impact integrity. (CVE-2016-5542)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the JMX subcomponent that
allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact
integrity. (CVE-2016-5554)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the 2D subcomponent that
allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5556)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the AWT subcomponent that
allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5568)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the Hotspot
subcomponent that allow an unauthenticated, remote
attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5573,
CVE-2016-5582)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Networking
subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote
attacker to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2016-5597)
