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

critical Nessus Plugin ID 88046


The remote Unix 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 71, 7 Update 95, or 6 Update 111. It is, therefore, affected by security vulnerabilities in the following components :

- 2D
- Libraries
- Networking
- Security


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.
