Mac OS X Six months ago, a certain security flaw in Java was fixed by Sun. This flaw was present in OpenJDK, GIJ, icedtea and Sun's JRE, but it got fixed in those. There's one important shipping Java implementation that still has not been fixed to remove this security flaw: Apple's Java.

I'm shaking my head again. Is anything but hardware of interest to Apple now?

I understand the need to make money to keep the company going, but how long will all but the most fanatical accept the company's complete disregard for reality and security?

I like most of what the company does, but this is no way to encourage new purchases. Sure Mac OS X is reasonably secure by default, but Apple, what have you done for me lately?
