Java Runtime Environment 1.6 Update 29

Version 1.6 of the Java platform has been updated to version 29. If you’re not prompted to update automatically, visit Java.com and click the download button.
It patches 20 vulnerabilities including protection against BEAST.

“BEAST” (Browser Exploit Against SSL/TLS) can potentially provide a malicious hacker the ability to bypass SSL/TLS encryption and ultimately decrypt potentially sensitive web traffic.  This exploit was recently demonstrated at a security conference.  The vulnerability related to this exploit is CVE-2011-3389.


You might have read my previous article, Java 7 released, but it’s still not out of RC.

Java 6 SE - Update 29


You can directly download the whole install package for both 32 and 64 bit windows versions from FileHippo, or visit the Java website directly to be offered an installation suitable for your OS and language.
