Critical Patch Update for Java SE

February 2, 2013 By: Tori Wieldt

Oracle just released the February 2013 Critical Patch Update for Java SE. Oracle accelerated the release of this update because active exploitation “in the wild” of one of the vulnerabilities affecting the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in desktop browsers has been addressed with this Critical Patch Update. In addition to a number of security in-depth fixes, this update contains fixes for 50 security vulnerabilities. Oracle strongly recommends that customers apply CPU fixes as soon as possible. You can read details on the Oracle Software Security Assurance Blog.

Released today is:

  • Java SE 7 Update 13
  • Java SE 6 Update 39
  • JavaFX 2.2.5

Consumers can get the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) from Java.com. Developers can get the Java Development Kit (JDK) from the Oracle Technology Network.
