Oracle Java SE Hotspot JSR 292 Method Handles RCE
High Nessus Plugin ID 90828
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains a programming platform that is affected by an arbitrary code execution vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of Oracle Java SE or Java for Business installed on the remote host is affected by an arbitrary code execution vulnerability in the Hotspot subcomponent due to an unsafe implementation of the Reflection API, which improperly processes JSR 292 method handles due to a lack of enforcement of class loader constraints. A remote attacker can exploit this, by convincing a user to visit a malicious web page, to execute arbitrary code outside the Java sandbox.
SolutionUpgrade to Oracle JDK / JRE 8 Update 77, 7 Update 99 or later.
If necessary, remove any affected versions.
