Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200702-08 (AMD64 x86 emulation Sun's J2SE Development Kit: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Chris Evans has discovered multiple buffer overflows in Sun JDK and Sun     JRE possibly related to various AWT or font layout functions. Tom     Hawtin has discovered an unspecified vulnerability in Sun JDK and Sun     JRE relating to unintended applet data access. He has also discovered     multiple other unspecified vulnerabilities in Sun JDK and Sun JRE     allowing unintended Java applet or application resource acquisition.
Additionally, a memory corruption error has been found in the handling     of GIF images with zero width field blocks.

Impact :

An attacker could entice a user to run a specially crafted Java applet     or application that could read, write, or execute local files with the     privileges of the user running the JVM, access data maintained in other     Java applets, or escalate the privileges of the currently running Java     applet or application allowing for unauthorized access to system     resources.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
