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


Don't count on it. Apple websites will systematically ignore this, and take a guess where the truly major sites get their Mac news from...

Bingo.

MacGeneration which is a well known french Apple site has an article about it.

Don't assume too much when you don't know.

Well, it's on MacRumors and CNBC, the financial network watches MR closely so others will likely take notice.

And you got modded up for your troll...


It wasn't a troll. This news was out and about for a long time already, and the sites that are SUPPOSED to carry it (Mac sites), did not. Explain to me how the latest fart from an Apple employee gets pushed across the Apple blogosphere at lightspeed, but something negative takes days to appear?
