LXer: Oracle releases emergency patches for Java

Published at LXer:

Oracle has released a large package of security updates for Java which addresses 50 vulnerabilities in Java both in the browser and in the server. The "Critical Patch Update February 2013" (CPU) for Java had been scheduled, says Oracle, for 19 February, but due to one of the vulnerabilities being exploited in the wild, the company brought the release forward. Oracle advise users to install the update as soon as possible because of "the threat posed by a successful attack". This probably explains why Apple disabled Java at the end of the week, as they most likely knew the update was arriving early.
