Oracle Java SE 7 < Update 11 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 63521


The remote Windows host contains a programming platform that is potentially 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 11 and is, therefore, potentially affected by the following security issues :

- An unspecified issue exists in the Libraries component. (CVE-2012-3174)

- An error exists in the 'MBeanInstantiator.findClass' method that could allow remote, arbitrary code execution.

Note that, according the advisory, these issues apply to client deployments of Java only and can only be exploited through untrusted 'Java Web Start' applications and untrusted Java applets.


Update to JDK / JRE 7 Update 11 or later and, if necessary, remove any affected versions.
