Oracle Java SE 7 < Update 85 / 8 < Update 51 Local Privilege Escalation

Critical

Synopsis

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

Description

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. This may allow a local attacker to gain elevated privileges. No further details have been provided by the vendor.

Solution

Update to Java 1.7.0_85 (for JRE 7) / 1.8.0_51 (for JRE 8) or later.
