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


The remote Mac OS X host has a version of Java for Mac OS X 10.6 that is missing Update 13, which updates the Java version to 1.6.0_41. 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.


Upgrade to Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 13, which includes version 13.9.2 of the JavaVM Framework.
