Oracle Java SE Multiple Vulnerabilities (July 2018 CPU) (Unix)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 111162
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 2, 8 Update 181, 7 Update 191, or 6 Update 201. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities related to the following components :

- Concurrency. A difficult to exploit vulnerability allows an unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE (CVE-2018-2952)

- Deployment. A difficult to exploit vulnerability allows an unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE (CVE-2018-2964)

- JSSE. A difficult to exploit vulnerability allows an unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE (CVE-2018-2973)

- Java DB. A difficult to exploit vulnerability allows an unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE. (CVE-2018-2938)

- JavaFX. A difficult to exploit vulnerability allows an unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE. (CVE-2018-2941)

- Libraries. An easily exploitable vulnerability allows an unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE. (CVE-2018-2940)

- Security. A difficult to exploit vulnerability allows an unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE (CVE-2018-2972)

- Windows DLL. A difficult to exploit vulnerability allows an unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE (CVE-2018-2942)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle JDK / JRE 10 Update 2, 8 Update 181 / 7 Update 191 / 6 Update 201 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.
