Oracle Updates for October 2013
Oracle yesterday released its Critical Patch Update for October 2013. The update includes 127 security fixes for more than a dozen products, including fifty-one fixes for Java. Apple also released an update to its supported version of Java.
As fifty of the Java fixes affect the plug-in that controls Java in your web browser, ITS recommends updating to the latest version of Java (Version 7 Update 45) as soon as possible. Users can update to the latest version using the Java Control Panel, found in the Windows Control Panel or OSX System Preferences.
For more information about these updates, see the Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory – October 2013.
