Massive Oracle Java patch released

Oracle issued a massive Critical Patch Update on Tuesday, fixing a massive 193 new security vulnerabilities in its software.

Many of these fixes are for software used by enterprises, however amongst the updates are 25 fixes for software that many computer users do have installed: Java.

Included in the Java update is a patch for the recently-discovered zero-day vulnerability in Java (CVE-2015-2590) that has been actively exploited in the wild by the Pawn Storm hacking gang.

The security vulnerability is particularly notable because it is thought to be the first new zero-day vulnerability that has targeted Java for two years.

Time to get patching pronto!!
