Which is the latest update?
Thank you Grif for your response. I note that I currently am running V7update9 of Java. Have there been newer updates since that update was issued? The machine which was updated began showing 'security warning' windows after Java was updated. I'll check with the people who installed Security Essentials to find out if the 'warning' is actually from MSE or the exploit itself.
At present, I have not chosen to upgrade until I hear that java released a fully secure update.
