Synopsis

IBM Java is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of IBM Java installed on the remote host is prior to 6.0 < 6.0.16.60 / 6.1 < 6.1.8.60 / 7.0 < 7.0.10.20 / 7.1 < 7.1.4.20 / 8.0 < 8.0.5.10. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the Oracle January 16 2018 CPU advisory.

- Vulnerability in the Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit component of Oracle Java SE (subcomponent:
Libraries). Supported versions that are affected are Java SE: 6u171, 7u161, 8u152 and 9.0.1; Java SE Embedded: 8u151; JRockit: R28.3.16. Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized read access to a subset of Java SE, Java SE Embedded, JRockit accessible data. Note: This vulnerability applies to client and server deployment of Java. This vulnerability can be exploited through sandboxed Java Web Start applications and sandboxed Java applets. It can also be exploited by supplying data to APIs in the specified Component without using sandboxed Java Web Start applications or sandboxed Java applets, such as through a web service.
