    please note that the above was not updated. The update that was released applied to Apple has released Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 1 and Java for Mac OS X 10.5 Update 6 to address these vulnerabilities. Mac users are encouraged to review Apple articles HT3969 and HT3970 and apply any necessary updates to help mitigate the risks.
