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.

DescriptionThe remote Mac OS X host is running a version of Java for Mac OS X 10.6 that is missing Update 9, which updates the Java version to 1.6.0_33. 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.
In addition, the Java browser plugin and Java Web Start are deactivated if they remain unused for 35 days or do not meet the criteria for minimum safe version.
