Java Update Fixes Latest Round of Problems

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – The increasingly leaky platform known as Java recently has received its latest batch of fixes.

Oracle recently detailed them via its website.

“A Critical Patch Update is a collection of patches for multiple security vulnerabilities. The Critical Patch Update for Java SE also includes non-security fixes. Critical Patch Updates are cumulative and each advisory describes only the security fixes added since the previous Critical Patch Update and Security Alert. Thus, prior Critical Patch Update and Security Alert advisories should be reviewed for information regarding earlier accumulated security fixes,” noted the company.

Meanwhile, Java is expected to receive patches during later months including June, October along with January and April of next year.

Java enabled browsers have become more and more vulnerable to hackers within the recent past. Earlier this year, the U.S. government went so far as to ask that users temporarily disable it because of problems.
