Apple releases Java 7 Update 11 for Mac OS X

A Zero -day vulnerability was discovered in Java last week, software that is developed by Oracle Corporation. Oracle released a patch for the vulnerability on Sunday and today Apple has released Java 7 update 11 which addresses the vulnerability. 

The Java 7 Update 11 is the instant critical security update required to fix the zero-day exploit present in Java 7 Update 10 and previous versions of the Java software. 

Java 7 Update 11 satisfies Apple’s anti-malware requirements for OS X. It is still however required that a minimum Java version of 1.7.0_10-b19 be maintained. The warnings continue for users that the Java browser plug-in can still be a risk even after the update from Oracle.

It’s stated that “the default security level for Java applets and web start applications has been increased from Medium to High. With the High setting the user is always warned before any unsigned application is run to prevent silent exploitation.” Unless it is absolutely necessary to run Java in Web browsers, disable it even after updating to Update 11.
