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.

A few years ago, Apple was releasing a new version of their JRE every month to fix security problems... because of course Apple can't be trusted to do anything securely in the first place. I guess they got sick of constantly working on Java, and so they're ignoring the problems.

I'd like to see widespread coverage of this, it might make Apple pull its head in a bit.
