Oracle Java SE Multiple Vulnerabilities (October 2012 CPU) (Unix)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 64849
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 programming platform that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java SE or Java for Business installed on the remote host is earlier than 7 Update 9 / 6 Update 37 / 5.0 Update 38 / 1.4.2_40 and is, therefore, potentially affected by security issues in the following components :

- 2D
- Beans
- Concurrency
- Deployment
- Hotspot
- JAX-WS
- JMX
- JSSE
- Libraries
- Networking
- Security
- Swing

Solution

Update to JDK / JRE 7 Update 9 / 6 Update 37, JDK 5.0 Update 38, SDK 1.4.2_40 or later and remove, if necessary, any affected versions.

Note that an Extended Support contract with Oracle is needed to obtain JDK 5 .0 Update 38 or later.
