+ - Apple Updates Java to Include Flashback Removal->

Submitted by
Fluffeh
Fluffeh writes "In the third update to Java that Apple has released this week, the update now identifies and removes the most common variants of the Flashback malware that has infected over half a million Apple machines. "This Java security update removes the most common variants of the Flashback malware," Apple wrote in the support document for the update. "This update also configures the Java web plug-in to disable the automatic execution of Java applets. Users may re-enable automatic execution of Java applets using the Java Preferences application. If the Java web plug-in detects that no applets have been run for an extended period of time it will again disable Java applets.""
