Oracle lanseaza Java 7 Update 13, plugin-ul web se reactiveaza automat in OS X

  Saptamana aceasta compania Apple a ales sa blocheze din nou functionalitatea plugin-ului web Java in OS X din cauza unor vulnerabilitati care permiteau hackerilor sa exploateze Mac-urile utilizatorilor. La doar doua zile dupa acel eveniment, Java Update 13 a fost lansat, iar Oracle sustine ca in acest update a rezolvat peste 50 de probleme ale software-ului sau, insa lansarea a fost avansata cu cateva saptamani de zile din cauza vulnerabilitatilor care existau in versiunea anterioara a Java. Instalarea update-ului va reactiva automat web plugin-ul pe Mac-uri, iar mai multe informatii gasiti aici.

The original Critical Patch Update for Java SE – February 2013 was scheduled to be released on February 19th, but Oracle decided to accelerate the release of this Critical Patch Update because active exploitation “in the wild” of one of the vulnerabilities affecting the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in desktop browsers, was addressed with this Critical Patch Update. Due to the threat posed by a successful attack, Oracle strongly recommends that customers apply CPU fixes as soon as possible. This Critical Patch Update contains 50 new security fixes across Java SE products.
