Oracle Java JDK / JRE 7 < Update 17 Remote Code Execution

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6711
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 Windows host contains a programming platform that is affected by remote code execution vulnerability

Description

The version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7.x installed on the remote host is earlier than Update 17. It therefore, potentially can allow remote code execution due to the following vulnerabilities related to the '2D' sub-component :

- An integer overflow error exists related to handling sample model instances that could result in memory corruption leading to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-0809)

- An unspecified error exists that could allow memory to be overwritten and could allow the security manager to be bypassed, thus leading to application crashes or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1493)

Please note this issue affects client deployments only and is exploited through untrusted 'Java Web Start' applications and untrusted Java applets.

Solution

Update to JDK / JRE 7 Update 17 or later and remove any affected versions.
