Oracle Java SE 1.7.0_301 / 1.8.0_291 / 1.11.0_11 / 1.16.0_1 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Unix Apr 2021 CPU)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 148961

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 301, 8 Update 291, 11 Update 11, or 16 Update 1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the April 2021 CPU advisory:

- A vulnerability in Java SE, SE Embedded and Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition allows unauthenticated remote attacker to compromise the system which can result in an unauthorized creation, deletion or modification access to critical data. (CVE-2021-2161)

- A vulnerability in Java SE, SE Embedded and Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition allows unauthenticated remote attacker with a human interaction from a person other than the attacker to compromise the system which can result in an unauthorized creation, deletion or modification access to critical data. (CVE-2021-2163)

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

Solution

Apply the appropriate patch according to the April 2021 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
