high Nessus Plugin ID 103964
New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.7


The remote Unix 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.
