Oracle Java SE 1.7.0_321 / 1.8.0_311 / 1.11.0_13 / 1.17.0_1 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Unix October 2021 CPU)

High

Plugin Output:
The following vulnerable instances of Java are installed on the
remote host :

  Path              : /spectrum/Java
  Installed version : 1.8.0_302
  Fixed version     : 1.7.0_321 / 1.8.0_311 / 1.11.0_13 / 1.17.0_1

  Path              : /spectrum/SRAdmin
  Installed version : 1.8.0_292
  Fixed version     : 1.7.0_321 / 1.8.0_311 / 1.11.0_13 / 1.17.0_1

The version of Oracle (formerly Sun) Java SE or Java for Business installed on the remote host is prior to 7 Update 321, 8 Update 311, 11 Update 13, or 17 Update 1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the October 2021 CPU advisory:

  - Vulnerability in the Java SE product of Oracle Java SE (component: JavaFX (libxml)). The supported version that is     affected is Java SE: 8u301. Easily exploitable vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access     via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized     ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of Java SE as well as unauthorized update,     insert or delete access to some of Java SE accessible data and unauthorized read access to a subset of Java SE     accessible data. This vulnerability applies to Java deployments, typically in clients running sandboxed Java Web     Start applications or sandboxed Java applets, that load and run untrusted code (e.g., code that comes from the     internet) and rely on the Java sandbox for security. This vulnerability does not apply to Java deployments,     typically in servers, that load and run only trusted code (e.g., code installed by an administrator).     (CVE-2021-3517)

  - Vulnerability in the Java SE product of Oracle Java SE (component: Deployment). The supported version that is     affected is Java SE: 8u301. Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access     via multiple protocols to compromise Java SE. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than     the attacker. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of Java SE. This vulnerability     applies to Java deployments, typically in clients running sandboxed Java Web Start applications or sandboxed Java     applets, that load and run untrusted code (e.g., code that comes from the internet) and rely on the Java sandbox for     security. This vulnerability does not apply to Java deployments, typically in servers, that load and run only trusted     code (e.g., code installed by an administrator). (CVE-2021-35560)

  - Vulnerability in the Java SE, Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition product of Oracle Java SE (component: Libraries).     Supported versions that are affected are Java SE: 8u301, 11.0.12, 17; Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition: 20.3.3 and     21.2.0. Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged attacker with network access via Kerberos to     compromise Java SE, Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person     other than the attacker and while the vulnerability is in Java SE, Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition, attacks may     significantly impact additional products. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized access     to critical data or complete access to all Java SE, Oracle GraalVM Enterprise Edition accessible data.     (CVE-2021-35567)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Apply the appropriate patch according to the October 2021 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
