Description

The remote host is using an unmanaged version of Sun Java Runtime Environment that has vulnerabilities in its Java Runtime Plug-in, a web browser add-on used to display Java applets :

  • An untrusted applet may escalate its privileges in order to read, write or execute files on the remote system.

  • An untrusted applet may interfere with trusted applets loaded on the same page.

A remote attacker could exploit these by tricking a user into visiting a maliciously crafted web page.
