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

high Nessus Plugin ID 37437
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

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.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
