Mac OS X : Java for OS X 2012-006

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 62595

Synopsis

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

Description

The remote Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.8 host has a Java runtime that is missing the Java for OS X 2012-006 update, which updates the Java version to 1.6.0_37. It is, therefore, 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

Apply the Java for OS X 2012-006 update, which includes version 14.5.0 of the JavaVM Framework.
