Synopsis

The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

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.
