Oracle Java JDK / JRE 7 < Update 17 Remote Code Execution (Unix)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 65053

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 9.6

Synopsis

The remote host contains a runtime environment that can allow code execution.

Description

The version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7.x installed on the remote host is earlier than Update 17. It, therefore, potentially can allow remote code execution due to the following vulnerabilities related to the '2D' sub-component :

- An integer overflow error exists related to handling sample model instances that could result in memory corruption leading to arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2013-0809)

- An unspecified error exists that could allow memory to be overwritten and could allow the security manager to be bypassed, thus leading to application crashes or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1493)

Please note this issue affects client deployments only and is exploited through untrusted 'Java Web Start' applications and untrusted Java applets.

Solution

Update to JDK / JRE 7 Update 17 or later and remove, if necessary, any affected versions.
