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 7.

The remote version of this software contains several security vulnerabilities which may allow a rogue java applet to execute arbitrary code on the remote host.

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 7 or later.
