critical Nessus Plugin ID 64830
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Unix host contains a runtime environment that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Sun Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed on the remote host is earlier than 6 Update 15 / 5.0 Update 20 / 1.4.2_22 / 1.3.1_26. Such version are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- A vulnerability in the JRE audio system may allow system properties to be accessed. (263408)

- A privilege escalation vulnerability may exist in the JRE SOCKS proxy implementation. (263409)

- An integer overflow vulnerability when parsing JPEG images may allow an untrusted Java Web Start application to elevate privileges. (263428)

- A vulnerability with verifying HMAC-based XML digital signatures in the XML Digital Signature implementation may allow authentication to be bypassed. (263429)

- An integer overflow vulnerability with unpacking applets and Java Web start applications using the 'unpack200' JAR unpacking utility may allow an untrusted applet to elevate privileges. (263488)

- An issue with parsing XML data may allow a remote client to create a denial of service condition. (263489)

- Non-current versions of the 'JNLPAppletLauncher' may be re-purposed with an untrusted Java applet to write arbitrary files. (263490)

Solution

Update to Sun Java JDK / JRE 6 Update 15, JDK / JRE 5.0 Update 20, SDK / JRE 1.4.2_22, or SDK / JRE 1.3.1_26 or later and remove, if necessary, any affected versions.
