Oracle Java SE Multiple Vulnerabilities (April 2017 CPU) (Unix)

high Nessus Plugin ID 99589
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 6 Update 151, 7 Update 141, or 8 Update 131. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Networking subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to impact confidentiality and integrity.
(CVE-2017-3509)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the JCE subcomponent that allows a local attacker to gain elevated privileges.
This vulnerability does not affect Java SE version 6.
(CVE-2017-3511)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the AWT subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. This vulnerability does not affect Java SE version 6. (CVE-2017-3512)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the AWT subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-3514)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the JAXP subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-3526)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the Networking subcomponent that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to gain update, insert, or delete access to unauthorized data. (CVE-2017-3533, CVE-2017-3544)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Security subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to gain update, insert, or delete access to unauthorized data.
(CVE-2017-3539)

Solution

Upgrade to Oracle JDK / JRE 6 Update 151 / 7 Update 141 / 8 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.
