Synopsis

The remote host 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 7 Update 261, 8 Update 251, 11 Update 7, or 14 Update 1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities related to the following components :

- Oracle Java SE and Java SE Embedded are prone to a buffer overflow attack, over 'Multiple' protocol.
This issue affects the 'JavaFX (libxslt)' component. Successful attacks of this vulnerability allow unauthenticated attacker with network access to takeover of Java SE. (CVE-2019-18197)

- Oracle Java SE and Java SE Embedded are prone to partial denial of service (partial DOS) vulnerability.
An unauthenticated remote attacker can exploit this over 'Multiple' protocol. This issue affects the 'Scripting' component. (CVE-2020-2754, CVE-2020-2755)

- Oracle Java SE and Java SE Embedded are prone to partial denial of service (partial DOS) vulnerability.
An unauthenticated remote attacker can exploit this over 'Multiple' protocol. This issue affects the 'Serialization' component. (CVE-2020-2756, CVE-2020-2757)

- Oracle Java SE prone to unauthorized read access vulnerability. An unauthenticated remote attacker can exploit this over 'Multiple' protocol can result in unauthorized read access to a subset of Java SE accessible data. This issue affects the 'Advanced Management Console' component. (CVE-2020-2764)

- Oracle Java SE and Java SE Embedded are prone to unauthorized write/read access vulnerability. An unauthenticated remote attacker over 'HTTPS' can read, update, insert or delete access to some of Java SE accessible data. This issue affects the 'JSSE' component. (CVE-2020-2767)

- Oracle Java SE and Java SE Embedded are prone to partial denial of service (partial DOS) vulnerability.
An unauthenticated remote attacker can exploit this over 'Multiple' protocol. This issue affects the 'Scripting' component. (CVE-2020-2773)

It is also affected by other vulnerabilities; please see vendor advisories for more information.

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

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle JDK / JRE 14 Update 1 , 11 Update 7 , 8 Update 251 , 7 Update 261 or later.
