critical Nessus Plugin ID 56749
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote host has a version of Java installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Mac OS X host is running a version of Java for Mac OS X 10.7 that is missing Update 1, which updates the Java version to 1.6.0_29. It is, therefore, affected by multiple security vulnerabilities, the most serious of which may allow an untrusted Java applet to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the current user outside the Java sandbox.

Solution

Upgrade to Java for Mac OS X 10.7 Update 1, which includes version 14.1.0 of the JavaVM Framework.
