Last week was update time for Microsoft and Abode, but now Oracle has joined the update boat. This update round for Java include 40 vulnerability fixes and is critical enough that Java jumped the gun a month early on the release date (they typically release updates in January, April, July, and October).
Anyone currently running Java are highly encouraged to update. The updates are only packaged with Java 7, so anyone still running Java 6 or 5. At this point, all future updates will only apply to version 7 or newer.
This round of updates addresses only Java. No updates have been released for other Oracle products and are not expected until the middle of July.
For those customers that utilize A2Z’s Preventive Maintennace, your systems will be updated with the latest version during your next scheduled appointment. Any customer who would like to get these updates applied, feel to drop your system off at our Office, or contact us if your a business and want to schedule an appointment.
