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: 8.1

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 9 Update 4, 8 Update 161, 7 Update 171, or 6 Update 1888888881. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities related to the following components :

- AWT
- Deployment
- Hotspot
- I18n
- Installer
- JCE
- JGSS
- JMX
- JNDI
- JavaFX
- LDAP
- Libraries
- Serialization

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle JDK / JRE 9 Update 4, 8 Update 161 / 7 Update 171 / 6 Update 181 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.
