Critical Java Vulnerabilities Update: Apple OS X Patched

Last week, I posted an  alert about some highly critical flaws in Oracle Java; especially one in particular (CVE-2012-4681), which attackers have aggressively exploited in the wild. If an attacker can lure you to a web page or link containing malicious Java content, he can exploit these flaws to execute code on your computer, potentially gaining complete control of it. Oracle released an out-of-cycle update last week to fix this vulnerability, and two others.
