Oracle Java SE Multiple Vulnerabilities (October 2015 CPU)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 86542
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.


The remote Windows host contains a programming platform that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java SE or Java for Business installed on the remote host is prior to 8 Update 65, 7 Update 91, or 6 Update 105. It is, therefore, affected by security vulnerabilities in the following components :

- 2D
- Deployment
- JavaFX
- Libraries
- Security
- Serialization


Upgrade to Oracle JDK / JRE 8 Update 65, 7 Update 91, 6 Update 105, or later. If necessary, remove any affected versions.

Note that an Extended Support contract with Oracle is needed to obtain JDK / JRE 6 Update 95 or later.
