New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 8.9


The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Mac OS X 10.4 host is running a version of Java for Mac OS X that is older than release 6.

The remote version of this software contains several security vulnerabilities that may allow a rogue Java applet to escalate its privileges and to add or remove arbitrary items from the user's KeyChain.

To exploit these flaws, an attacker would need to lure an attacker into executing a rogue Java applet.


Upgrade to Java for Mac OS X 10.4 release 6.
