Oracle Java Runtime Environment MBean code execution

oracle-jre-mbean-code-execution (81117) The risk level is classified as HighHigh Risk

Description:

Oracle Java Runtime Environment could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system, caused by errors involving Java Management Extensions (JMX) MBean components. By persuading a victim to visit a specially-crafted Web site containing a malicious Java applet, an attacker could invoke the setSecurityManager() function to execute arbitrary code outside the sandbox with elevated privileges.
