Java 7 update (again) and last ever Java 6 update for OSX

By

Oracle has released its last ever update for Java V6 and Apple pushes it out for legacy OS X users.

The word Java and emergency patches seem to have become synonymous - Java 6 for OS X is up to version 41 and Java 7 for Windows is up to version 15.

It seems that more hackers prefer Java based exploits than any other. Don’t get me wrong Java is a very fine programing language and is a foundation for many mobile applications, games and web based content – but for the present one that most of us should live without.

Java 6 is a legacy program for Mac OS X v10.6.8, Mac OS X Server v10.6.8, OS X Lion v10.7 and later, OS X Lion Server v10.7 and later, and OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 and later. A link to the Apple update for is here . Mac users can update to java 7 directly from www.java.com.
