Appupdater Solution to Java Vulnerability

Dangerous Java flaw threatens virtually everything,39044215,62028389,00.htm

Pure Hacking’s Gatford said the problem is compounded by the slim chance of an enterprise patching Java Runtime vulnerabilities.

"It would be an extremely difficult and laborious process for an organization trying to patch Java Runtime across the enterprise," he said.

But not if they are using Appupdater...when the fix is released Appupdater will have it.
