Oracle Java SE Multiple Vulnerabilities (April 2017 CPU) (Unix)

This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Unix 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 6 Update 151, 7 Update 141,
or 8 Update 131. It is, therefore, affected by multiple
vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Networking
subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote
attacker to impact confidentiality and integrity.
(CVE-2017-3509)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the JCE subcomponent that
allows a local attacker to gain elevated privileges.
This vulnerability does not affect Java SE version 6.
(CVE-2017-3511)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the AWT subcomponent
that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to
execute arbitrary code. This vulnerability does not
affect Java SE version 6. (CVE-2017-3512)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the AWT subcomponent
that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-3514)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the JAXP subcomponent that
allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a
denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-3526)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the Networking
subcomponent that allow an unauthenticated, remote
attacker to gain update, insert, or delete access to
unauthorized data. (CVE-2017-3533, CVE-2017-3544)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Security subcomponent
that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to gain
update, insert, or delete access to unauthorized data.
(CVE-2017-3539)
