critical Nessus Plugin ID 118227
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 11 Update 1, 8 Update 191, 7 Update 201, or 6 Update 211. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified vulnerability in the Java SE Embedded component of Oracle Java SE in the Deployment (libpng) subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker with network access via HTTP to compromise Java SE. (CVE-2018-13785)
- An unspecified vulnerability in the Java SE Embedded component of Oracle Java SE in the Hotspot subcomponent that could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE (CVE-2018-3169)

- An unspecified vulnerability in the Java SE component of Oracle Java SE in the JavaFX subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE.
(CVE-2018-3209)

- An unspecified vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded, and JRockit component of Oracle Java SE in the JNDI subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded, and JRockit. (CVE-2018-3149)
- An unspecified vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit component of Oracle Java SE in the JSSE subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker with network access via SSL/TLS to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded, or JRockit.
(CVE-2018-3180)

- An unspecified vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded component of Oracle Java SE in the Networking subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE or Java SE Embedded. (CVE-2018-3139)

- An unspecified vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit component of Oracle Java SE in the Scripting subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded, or JRockit. (CVE-2018-3183)

- An unspecified vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded component of Oracle Java SE in the Security subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded. (CVE-2018-3136)

- An unspecified vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded component of Oracle Java SE in the Serviceability subcomponent could allow a low privileged attacker with logon to the infrastructure where Java SE, Java SE Embedded executes to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded. (CVE-2018-3211)

- An unspecified vulnerability in the Java SE component of Oracle Java SE in the Sound subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE.
(CVE-2018-3157)

- An unspecified vulnerability in the Java SE component of Oracle Java SE in the Utility subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE.
(CVE-2018-3150)

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 11 Update 1, 8 Update 191 / 7 Update 201 / 6 Update 211 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.
