Sun Java JRE Plug-in Capability Arbitrary Package Access (Unix)

high Nessus Plugin ID 64835
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.


The remote Unix host has an application that is affected by a security bypass vulnerability.


The remote host is using an unmanaged version of Sun Java Runtime Environment that has vulnerabilities in its Java Runtime Plug-in, a web browser add-on used to display Java applets :

- An untrusted applet may escalate its privileges in order to read, write or execute files on the remote system.

- An untrusted applet may interfere with trusted applets loaded on the same page.

A remote attacker could exploit these by tricking a user into visiting a maliciously crafted web page.


Upgrade to JDK 1.3.1_13 / JRE 1.4.2_06 or later.
