    It's about time. I wish I could place bets on how quickly the patch is found to have yet another exploitable hole in it. Thanks.

    Edit: I don't recall them ever sending out a patch for the very last vulnerability that was found a few weeks ago.

    February...February? The smiley icons I have available to choose from here in the post can't properly reproduce the look I have on my face right now. Java security issues are making IE 6 look like Chrome.

    Instead of coming to the conclusion that because the patch was already in final testing phase the vulnerability will be fixed the next patch day 4 months later they could come to the conclusion that perhaps they should make patch day monthly and create an out-of-band patch so that the hundred millions users around the world they so gladly advertise are not left vulnerable for so long..

    Lol, not necessary when there still exploitable holes left unpatched.

    EXACTLY. There's no obscene smiley icon that properly expresses the deep feelings I harbor against Java.
