- An issue was discovered in function ciMethodBlocks::make_block_at in Oracle JDK (HotSpot VM) 11, 17 and OpenJDK (HotSpot VM) 8, 11, 17, allows attackers to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2022-40433)

- Vulnerability in the Oracle Java SE, Oracle GraalVM for JDK, Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition, product of Oracle Java SE (component: Hotspot). Supported versions that are affected are Oracle Java SE: 8u381-perf, 17.0.8, 21; Oracle GraalVM for JDK: 17.0.8, 21; Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition: 21.3.7 and 22.3.3.
Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise Oracle Java SE, Oracle GraalVM for JDK, Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition,.
Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized update, insert or delete access to some of Oracle Java SE, Oracle GraalVM for JDK, Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition, accessible data. Note:
This vulnerability can be exploited by using APIs in the specified Component, e.g., through a web service which supplies data to the APIs. This vulnerability also applies to Java deployments, typically in clients running sandboxed Java Web Start applications or sandboxed Java applets, that load and run untrusted code (e.g., code that comes from the internet) and rely on the Java sandbox for security. (CVE-2023-22025)

- Vulnerability in the Oracle Java SE, Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition product of Oracle Java SE (component: CORBA). Supported versions that are affected are Oracle Java SE: 8u381, 8u381-perf; Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition: 20.3.11 and 21.3.7. Easily exploitable vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via CORBA to compromise Oracle Java SE, Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition.
Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized update, insert or delete access to some of Oracle Java SE, Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition accessible data. Note: This vulnerability can only be exploited by supplying data to APIs in the specified Component without using Untrusted Java Web Start applications or Untrusted Java applets, such as through a web service. (CVE-2023-22067)

- Vulnerability in the Oracle Java SE, Oracle GraalVM for JDK, Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition product of Oracle Java SE (component: JSSE). Supported versions that are affected are Oracle Java SE: 8u381, 8u381-perf, 11.0.20, 17.0.8, 21; Oracle GraalVM for JDK: 17.0.8, 21; Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition:
20.3.11, 21.3.7 and 22.3.3. Easily exploitable vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via HTTPS to compromise Oracle Java SE, Oracle GraalVM for JDK, Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition.
Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized ability to cause a partial denial of service (partial DOS) of Oracle Java SE, Oracle GraalVM for JDK, Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition. Note:
This vulnerability applies to Java deployments, typically in clients running sandboxed Java Web Start applications or sandboxed Java applets, that load and run untrusted code (e.g., code that comes from the internet) and rely on the Java sandbox for security. This vulnerability does not apply to Java deployments, typically in servers, that load and run only trusted code (e.g., code installed by an administrator). (CVE-2023-22081)

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