October 23, 2011 1 comment

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.
