New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201111-02 (Oracle JRE/JDK: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in the Oracle Java implementation. Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below and the associated Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory for details.
A remote attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities to cause unspecified impact, possibly including remote execution of arbitrary code.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll Oracle JDK 1.6 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-java/sun-jdk-188.8.131.52' All Oracle JRE 1.6 users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=dev-java/sun-jre-bin-184.108.40.206' All users of the precompiled 32-bit Oracle JRE 1.6 should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-java-220.127.116.11' NOTE: As Oracle has revoked the DLJ license for its Java implementation, the packages can no longer be updated automatically. This limitation is not present on a non-fetch restricted implementation such as dev-java/icedtea-bin.
