    The advisory lists only 1.6.x but it's not clear to me that it's been fixed in 1.7.x either.

    So, the thing just gets updated and now they come with this? :argh: :ouch:

    -edit-

    The vulnerability is reported in versions 1.6.0.28 and prior.

    Then, it's a bit contradictory, isn't it? o_O Why would they mention only 1.6.0.28 and prior? There's no prior, then. I mean, there is, but we need to include, possibly, version 1.6.0.29. o_O But, I wonder if it has been patched in version 1.6.0.29? I'll see if I can spot anything in the change log.

    But, according to the original article (-http://blog.infobytesec.com/2011/12/pwning-java-update-process-2007-today.html):

    The article was written a week ago. By then, the latest version was 1.6.0.29 for quite some time, not 1.6.0.28.

    I'm not saying there isn't a bug; I'm just saying these folks need to make things a bit more clear. :D

    -edit-

    This is the page from Oracle regarding to what was patched in version 1.6.0.29. -http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/javacpuoct2011-443431.html

    I didn't see any mentions...
