Sun Releases Emergency Java Update for Windows

    Almost a week has passed since the release of information about a serious vulnerability in Java Web Start, as Sun admitted its error and released an emergency update for Java SE 6 .

    The question remains why they did not do it right away when security experts (including from Google) notified them of the discovery of this hole. Was it really necessary to wait for the first exploits to appear on the Web? Moreover, the Google specialist himself assures that by the time the information was released, the exploits already existed, and he was forced to publish full information on the Web. However, at first Sun did not attach importance to this threat.

    The Java plug-in for the browser after the update has lost the ability to run javaws.exe.
