Aug 30, Update Your Java NOW!

Java has a severe security flaw in it that is publicly known and exploited by a number or virus toolkits. Oracle has finally realeased and update that fixes this flaw. This flaw is severe enough and well known enough that it is being released outside of the standard update cycle.

By default Java does not check for daily updates, it might be up to a month before your system automatically detects that there is a new update. If you have not already been prompted to update Java, you should do it manually.

  1. In Control Panel, open Java. (you can also type Java from the search box in Start menu to find it)
  2. On the Update tab, click Update Now.
  3. Follow the onscreen instructions.
