Java for Mac: Apple Updates Java for OS X 10.6, OS X 10.7
Is Java for Mac security still an issue? Whereas Apple, Oracle and others have obviously turned a corner on security, the fight is far from over — so Java jockey guys and gals, it’s time to update, again.
And, this is important, Apple adds that this release of Apple’s Java SE 6 will uninstall Apple’s Java applet plug-in from all Web browsers and that means users must go to Oracle’s Web site to download the latest version of the Java applet.
For what it’s worth, Apple pushed the most recent XProtect update on (or about) October 9.
