Oracle Java SE Multiple Vulnerabilities (October 2012 CPU)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 62593
The remote Windows host contains a programming platform that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
The version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java SE or Java for Business installed on the remote host is earlier than 7 Update 9 / 6 Update 37 / 5.0 Update 38 / 1.4.2_40 and is, therefore, potentially affected by security issues in the following components : - 2D - Beans - Concurrency - Deployment - Hotspot - JAX-WS - JMX - JSSE - Libraries - Networking - Security - Swing
Update to JDK / JRE 7 Update 9 / 6 Update 37, JDK 5.0 Update 38, SDK 1.4.2_40 or later, and remove, if necessary, any affected versions. Note that an Extended Support contract with Oracle is needed to obtain JDK 5.0 Update 38 or later.
