Java vulnerabilities are the primary method used by malware to steal from you. Popular crimeware kits target Java for two reasons:

  1. Many don't know they have Java on their computer, so they don't update it.

  2. Many computers have multiple Java versions including very old versions. Old versions have many more vulnerabilities than newer ones.

Oracle announced its June Critical Patch Update will be released on Tuesday, June 7, 2011. It will contain 17 new security fixes for security vulnerabilities in Oracle Java SE.

The easiest way to keep Java up to date is by using a third party utility such as Secunia PSI or Qualys Browser Check. To learn more about these, see Healthy Passwords - Patching Popular Software Vulnerabilities
