Critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9351


The remote host is missing a critical Oracle Java SE patch update.


The Oracle Java SE installed on the remote host is version 7 prior to Update 85, or 8 prior to Update 51 and is therefore affected by an unspecified flaw related to the Install component.
