Java Media Framework (JMF) Vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Acertains the presence of JMF

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is using Sun Microsystems's Java Media Framework (JMF).

There is a bug in the version installed which may permit an untrusted
applet to crash the Java Virtual Machine it is being run on, or even
to gain unauthorized rights.

A possible hacker could exploit this flaw to execute arbitrary code on
this host. To exploit this flaw, the attacker would need to
send a rogue java applet to a user of the remote host and have
him execute it (since Java applets are running in a sandbox,
a user may probably feel safe executing it).


Solution : Upgrade to JMF 2.1.1e or newer
Risk : Medium
