Zero-day Java exploit fixed: Either update Java immediately, or disable it if you don’t use/need it

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/08/31

On monday, I wrote it was Time to disable Java for a while: Zero-Day Season is Not Over Yet.

Today Oracle released a fix, which you should either install immediately (that is NOW, don’t hesitate!).

For this vulnerability, it is enough to disable Java from your browser – see: How to disable Java in your web browser – but as with any software: if you don’t need it, just disable/uninstall it.

Disabling/uninstalling on a Mac may impose a problem, as Apple hasn’t come with an update for the OS X editions that came with Java pre-installed.

Most other users can either install the version on their current system on-line from Download Free Java Software, or download offline installers for other systems at Java Downloads for All Operating Systems.

I might actually try the Java Unattended Silent Installer and Updater from Ninite – Install or Update Multiple Apps at Once.
