Java SE 6 - Update 1.6.0_02

Sun Java has been updated to 1.6.0_02. As shown in the Release Notes, the update includes a long list of bug fixes, including this classic: "sloppy developer missed testcase when fixing 6490790."

I have not installed Sun Java on this machine yet but will be updating my posted Sunflowers and SunJava instructions in due course.




Remember - "A day without laughter is a day wasted."
May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart...

FYI-I went to the below to test my Java and it stated that I am up to date with Version 6 Update 1

http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp?jre_version=1.6.0_01&vendor=Sun+Microsystems+Inc.&os=Windows+XP&os_version=5.1

Is there a better way to check Java?

Hi, Stephen.

To answer your question succinctly, No!

Sun Microsystems does not have the best reputation in the "security community" for the update mechanism itself, for checking for updates, or for addressing or communicating security issues.

It is also important to note that old versions of Java must be manually uninstalled, most particularly, the older, vulnerable versions.
