Mac OS X : Java for OS X 2014-001

critical Nessus Plugin ID 78891
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 installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote Mac OS X 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, or 10.10 host has a Java runtime that is missing the Java for OS X 2014-001 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.

Note that the Java for OS X 2014-001 update installs the same version of Java 6 included in Java for OS X 2013-005.

Solution

Apply the Java for OS X 2014-001 update, which includes version 15.0.0 of the JavaVM Framework.
