Another Out-of-Band Critical Java Security Update
« on: March 04, 2013, 08:48:40 PM »
Although Oracle was planning to wait until April to update Java to address CVE-2013-1493, Java 7 Update 17 was released by Oracle today.  Security Alert CVE-2013-1493 addresses two vulnerabilities affecting Java running in web browsers (CVE-2013-1493 and CVE-2013-0809).

If Java is still installed on your computer, it is recommended that this update be applied as soon as possible due to the threat posed by a successful attack.

Download:  Java Version 7 Update 17
Verify your version:  http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp

Note:  As always, watch for unnecessary pre-checked options included with the installation.

To check your Java security settings, see the instructions at Another Out-of-Band Critical Java Security Update.
