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

critical Nessus Plugin ID 94139
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 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 111, 7 Update 121, or 6 Update 131. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Libraries subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact integrity. (CVE-2016-5542)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the JMX subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact integrity. (CVE-2016-5554)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the 2D subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5556)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the AWT subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5568)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the Hotspot subcomponent that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5573, CVE-2016-5582)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Networking subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2016-5597)

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle JDK / JRE 8 Update 111 / 7 Update 121 / 6 Update 131 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.
