Oracle Java SE Multiple Vulnerabilities (October 2017 CPU)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 103963
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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


The version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java SE or Java for Business installed on the remote host is prior to 9 Update 1, 8 Update 151, 7 Update 161, or 6 Update 171. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities related to the following components :

- 2D (Little CMS 2)
- Deployment
- Hotspot
- Javadoc
- Libraries
- Networking
- Security
- Serialization
- Smart Card IO
- Util (zlib)


Upgrade to Oracle JDK / JRE 9 Update 1, 8 Update 151 / 7 Update 161 / 6 Update 171 or later. If necessary, remove any affected versions.

Note that an Extended Support contract with Oracle is needed to obtain JDK / JRE 6 Update 95 or later.
