Oracle Java JDK / JRE 6 < Update 30 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Unix)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 64838


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


The version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6.x installed on the remote host is earlier than Update 30 and is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities:

- A stack overflow error exists related to proxy tunnels. (Bug #6670868)

- An error exists related to foreach loops containing generics that can lead to javac crashes. (Bug #6682380)

- An error exists related to security exceptions in 'AnnotationInvocationHandler.getMemberMethods'.
(Bug #6761678)

- An error in 'URI.equals' can allow a return value of 'true' when handling escaped octets. (Bug #7041800)

- An error related to 'liveconnect' can cause secure cookies not to be transferred. (Bug #7102914)

- SSL connectivity is broken when using the cipher suite TLS_DH_anon_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA. (Bug #7103725)


Update to JDK / JRE 6 Update 30 or later and remove, if necessary, any affected versions.
