Microsoft & Oracle both have released critical security updates today.
The Java flaw is significantly more wide-spread than the Internet Explorer vulnerability, affecting any machine with Oracle’s Java client installed – an estimated 850 million desktops and laptops around the world. The flaw was serious enough for browser makers, including Firefox creator Mozilla, to temporarily Java from loading in order to provide some level of protection against attack.
Microsoft is breaking with its self-imposed monthly patch cycle to address a serious security vulnerability in its Internet Explorer web browser as well.
The Microsoft Patch can be downloaded from Windows Update in Control Panel
The Java Update 11 can be downloaded from www.java.com
Once Java has been installed and patched you can reenable Java in your browser.
