Mac OS X : Java for OS X 2012-004

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 59464

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote Mac OS X 10.7 host is running a version of Java for Mac OS X that is missing update 2012-004, 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.

Solution

Upgrade to Java for OS X Lion 2012-004, which includes version 14.3.0 of the JavaVM Framework.
