Apple updates Java to patch zero-day vulnerability

Apple pushes out to Java 6 that patches a zero-day vulnerability

| Hacking & Security News | Posted: Mar 4, 2013 11:06 pm

Apple has released an update to Java 6 that patches a zero-day vulnerability discovered a few days ago. Mac OS X Lion and Mountain Lion users should download the Java for OS X 2013-002 update so that they aren't susceptible to the zero-day exploit that has been used in the wild. Mac OS X 10.6 Update 14 can be used for Snow Leopard users.

Oddly enough, Oracle delivers updates for Java 7, while Apple is tasked with keeping Java 6 updated.
