Vulnerability Assessment Details
Checks version of Sun JRE
Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote Windows host has a version of Sun's Java Runtime
Environment that is affected by a buffer overflow vulnerability.
According to its version number, the Sun JRE installed on the remote
host has a buffer overflow issue that can be triggered when parsing a
GIF image with the image width in an image block set to 0. If an
attacker can trick a user on the affected system into processing a
specially-crafted image file, say by visiting a malicious web site, he
may be able to leverage this flaw to execute arbitrary code on the
affected system subject to the user's rights.
