Oracle Java SE Multiple Vulnerabilities (January 2016 CPU) (SLOTH)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 88045
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 Windows host contains a programming platform that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java SE or Java for Business installed on the remote host is prior to 8 Update 71, 7 Update 95, or 6 Update 111. It is, therefore, affected by security vulnerabilities in the following components :

- 2D
- AWT
- JAXP
- JMX
- Libraries
- Networking
- Security

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle JDK / JRE 8 Update 71, 7 Update 95, 6 Update 111, or later. If necessary, remove any affected versions.

Note that an Extended Support contract with Oracle is needed to obtain JDK / JRE 6 Update 111 or later.
