    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.

    My apologies for any confusion this update may have caused

    regards
