Mac OS X : Java for OS X 2013-005

critical Nessus Plugin ID 70458
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 host has a version of Java that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.8 host has a Java runtime that is missing the Java for OS X 2013-005 update, which updates the Java version to 1.6.0_65. 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.

Solution

Apply the Java for OS X 2013-005 update, which includes version 14.9.0 of the JavaVM Framework.
