Mac OS X : Java for OS X 2013-003

critical Nessus Plugin ID 65999


The remote host has a version of Java that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The remote Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.8 host has a Java runtime that is missing the Java for OS X 2013-003 update, which updates the Java version to 1.6.0_45. It is, therefore, affected by multiple security vulnerabilities, the most serious of which may allow an untrusted Java applet to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the current user outside the Java sandbox.


Apply the Java for OS X 2013-003 update, which includes version 14.7.0 of the JavaVM Framework.
