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

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 65053


The remote host contains a runtime environment that can allow code


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.

- 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


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