FreeBSD : jdk/jre -- Security Vulnerability With Java Plugin (ac619d06-3ef8-11d9-8741-c942c075aa41)

High Nessus Plugin ID 37437


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


The Sun Java Plugin capability in Java 2 Runtime Environment (JRE) 1.4.2_01, 1.4.2_04, and possibly earlier versions, does not properly restrict access between JavaScript and Java applets during data transfer, which allows remote attackers to load unsafe classes and execute arbitrary code.


Update the affected packages.
