Accelerated Java Critical Update

"The scheduled February Java critical patch update was accelerated due to active exploitation "in the wild" of one of the vulnerabilities affecting the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) in desktop browsers.

The new Java release is Java� SE Development Kit 7, Update 13 (JDK 7u13), with the full version string for this update release being 1.7.0_13-b20 (where "b" means "build") and the version number is 7u13."

Oracle Java SE Critical Patch Update Advisory - February 2013

Still advisable to just remove java if you can live with out it, if not update and keep it turned off in your browsers till you get to a site you need it, turn it on then right back off, and then be extremely cautious.
If you have any older versions of java on your computer remove them asap because having them on the pc leaves it open to attack.
Why should I uninstall older versions of Java from my system?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Thanks for the reminder RavenCajun. I meant to check on it but kept putting it off. I went ahead and uninstall Java just to be on the safe side.
