Oracle Java JRE Unsupported Version Detection

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 55958


The remote host contains one or more unsupported versions of the Oracle Java JRE.


According to its self-reported version number, at least one installation of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java JRE on the remote host is no longer supported.

Lack of support implies that no new security patches for the product will be released by the vendor. As a result, it is likely to contain security vulnerabilities.

Note that Oracle does provide support contracts under the 'Oracle Lifetime Support' program. If the detected JRE is supported under this program, this may be a false positive.


Upgrade to a version of Oracle Java JRE that is currently supported.
