Mac OS X : Java for OS X Lion 2012-001

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 58606

Synopsis

The remote host has a version of Java 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 2012-001, which updates the Java version to 1.6.0_31. As such, it is affected by several 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 OS X Lion 2012-002, which includes version 14.2.1 of the JavaVM Framework.

Note that these vulnerabilities are actually addressed with Java for OS X Lion 2012-001. That update was found to have some non-security bugs, though, and has been re-released as 2012-002.
