high Nessus Plugin ID 109203
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.

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 10 Update 1, 8 Update 171, 7 Update 181, or 6 Update 191. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities related to the following components :

- AWT
- Concurrency
- Hotspot
- Install
- JAXP
- JMX
- Libraries
- RMI
- Security
- Serialization

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle JDK / JRE 10 Update 1, 8 Update 171 / 7 Update 181 / 6 Update 191 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.
