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

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 111162

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.
