Oracle Java SE Multiple Vulnerabilities (July 2016 CPU) (Unix)

High Nessus Plugin ID 92517

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 7.3

Synopsis

The remote Unix 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 101, 7 Update 111, or 6 Update 121. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the CORBA subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact integrity. (CVE-2016-3458)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Networking subcomponent that allows a local attacker to impact integrity. (CVE-2016-3485)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the JavaFX subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-3498)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the JAXP subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-3500)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Install subcomponent that allows a local attacker to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-3503)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the JAXP subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-3508)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Deployment subcomponent that allows a local attacker to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-3511)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Hotspot subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose potentially sensitive information.
(CVE-2016-3550)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Install subcomponent that allows a local attacker to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-3552)

- A flaw exists in the Hotspot subcomponent due to improper access to the MethodHandle::invokeBasic() function. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-3587)

- A flaw exists in the Libraries subcomponent within the MethodHandles::dropArguments() function that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-3598)

- A flaw exists in the Hotspot subcomponent within the ClassVerifier::ends_in_athrow() function when handling bytecode verification. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2016-3606)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Libraries subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-3610)

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle JDK / JRE 8 Update 101 / 7 Update 111 / 6 Update 121 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.
