+ - 215 Apple Fixes OS X Flaw That Allowed Java Apps to Run With Plugin Disabled->

Submitted by Trailrunner7
Trailrunner7 (1100399) writes "Apple on Thursday released a large batch of security fixes for its OS X operating system, one of which patches a flaw that allowed Java Web Start applications to run even when users had Java disabled in the browser. There have been a slew of serious vulnerabilities in Java disclosed in the last few months, and security experts have been recommending that users disable Java in their various browsers as a protection mechanism. However, it appears that measure wasn't quite enough to protect users of some versions of OS X."
