Oracle Java™ Critical Security Updates Released

Recommended Posts

Oracle released the scheduled critical security updates for its Java SE Runtime Environment software. This Critical Patch Update contains 12 new security fixes for Oracle Java SE. 11 of these vulnerabilities may be remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e., may be exploited over a network without requiring user credentials.

 

Update

 

If Java is still installed on your computer, it is recommended that this update be applied as soon as possible due to the threat posed by a successful attack.

 

Java SE 8u191 or 8u192

Java SE 11.0.1 (x64-bit only)

Notes:

 

UNcheck any pre-checked toolbar and/or software options presented with the update. They are not part of the software update and are completely optional. Preferably, see the instructions below on how to handle "Unwanted Extras".

Oracle does not plan to migrate desktops from Java 8 to Java 9 through the auto update feature. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you uninstall JRE 8 prior to updating.

Verify your version: http://www.java.com/...stjava.jsp.  Note: The Java version verification page will only work if your browser has NPAPI support. In that case, to check the version, open a cmd window and enter the following (note the space following Java): java -version
