Oracle Java SE Multiple Vulnerabilities (October 2010 CPU)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 49996
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.


The remote Windows host contains a programming platform that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java SE or Java for Business installed on the remote host is earlier than 6 Update 22 / 5.0 Update 26 / 1.4.2_28. Such versions are potentially affected by security issue in the following components :

- Deployment
- Deployment Toolkit
- Java 2D
- Java Web Start
- Kerberos
- Networking
- New Java Plug-in
- Sound
- Swing


Update to JDK / JRE 6 Update 22, JDK 5.0 Update 26, SDK 1.4.2_28 or later and remove if necessary any affected versions.

Note that an Extended Support contract with Oracle is needed to obtain JDK 5.0 Update 26 or later.
