re: Oracle Fixes Zero Day Java Flaws: Patch Now
Andrew, Apple Friday blocked all then-current/former versions of the Java browser plug-in. That meant that anyone who wanted to use the Java browser plug-in needed to wait until Java issued its fix (which it did Sunday), then download and install it. So it was a proactive security move on Apple's part, which isn't surprising given how many people the Flashback malware infected.

re: Oracle Fixes Zero Day Java Flaws: Patch Now
Any explanation yet as to why Apple did what they did? From what I've seen/heard, if you drop back to an older version of Java that isn't prone to this exploit, you should be fine - as long as you don't allow it to auto-update. But, Apple now has them marked as "bad actors" as well.

Microsoft putting out a patch that fixes something under very specific circumstances isn't new.

I have to wonder if Oracle should look into a third party validating their patches prior to release - especially since the entire world runs on Java these days.

re: Oracle Fixes Zero Day Java Flaws: Patch Now
Thanks for your comment. Good point -- one of the flaws was "addressed" (as in, not really solved) by changing the default security levels. The other flaw was fixed outright. We'll be addressing this in a forthcoming story.

re: Oracle Fixes Zero Day Java Flaws: Patch Now
The Java update also changes the default security level for browser-based Java applets and applications from "medium" to "high,"

Actually the change in the security level is all the fix does, that is why many folks are still advising to uninstall JAVA comletely.
