Hi Frank,

My understanding is that this environment is for application development suitable for the Sun Developers URL you provide in your second link. If you are not developing Java applicatons then one only needs to download the latest J2RE Runtime environment in order to run Java applications.

The latest J2RE environment is 1.5.0 update 4 available from here. The file size is 82KB. Unfortunately, I cannot find a separate JRE update 5 at the Sun Developers URL.

Quote:
There is a serious vulnerability in Java that leaves users running any of the current versions of Windows open to simple Web-based attacks that could lead to a complete compromise of the affected system. Two separate researchers released information on the vulnerability on Friday, saying that it has been present in Java for years.

The problem lies in the Java Web Start framework, a technology that Sun Microsystems developed to enable the simplified deployment of Java applications. In essence, the JavaWS technology fails to validate parameters passed to it from the command line, and attackers can control those parameters using specific HTML tags on a Web page, researcher Ruben Santamarta said in an advisory posted Friday morning.In short, if you have a recent version of Java running on a Windows machine, you're affected by this flaw.The workaround for this problem is to disable JavaWS and Javaws.exe, Santamarta said in his advisory

Other OSes will need an update, performance hits loom

A fundamental design flaw in Intel's processor chips has forced a significant redesign of the Linux and Windows kernels to defang the chip-level security bug.
 
Programmers are scrambling to overhaul the open-source Linux kernel's virtual memory system. Meanwhile, Microsoft is expected to publicly introduce the necessary changes to its Windows operating system in an upcoming Patch Tuesday: these changes were seeded to beta testers running fast-ring Windows Insider builds in November and December.
 
Crucially, these updates to both Linux and Windows will incur a performance hit on Intel products. The effects are still being benchmarked, however we're looking at a ballpark figure of five to 30 per cent slow down, depending on the task and the processor model. More recent Intel chips have features – such as PCID – to reduce the performance hit.
 
Similar operating systems, such as Apple's 64-bit macOS, will also need to be updated – the flaw is in the Intel x86 hardware, and it appears a microcode update can't address it. It has to be fixed in software at the OS level, or buy a new processor without the design blunder.
Details of the vulnerability within Intel's silicon are under wraps: an embargo on the specifics is due to lift early this month, perhaps in time for Microsoft's Patch Tuesday next week. Indeed, patches for the Linux kernel are available for all to see but c... Read more

A:'Kernel memory leaking' Intel processor flaw forces Linux,Windows redesign

What doesn't seem clear to me is that they say "Your Intel-powered machine will run slower as a result" and "AMD processors are not subject to the types of attacks that the kernel page table isolation feature protects against."However if "The fix is to separate the kernel's memory completely from user processes using what's called Kernel Page Table Isolation, or KPTI", is there going to be a different kernel architecture in the OS depending on whether it's running on Intel or AMD?

I?m trying to install the security update to patch the Sigred DNS vulnerability on our last Server 2008 x86. It?s being phased out soon but wanted to patch it regardless.
When I try to install KB4565529-x86 it says, ?The Windows Modules Installer must be updated before you can install this package" so I attempted to update the Servicing Stack for 2008 (not R2) which leads me to KB955430-x86 but that also errors out saying
that ?This update does not apply to your system?.

Adobe Systems has released an emergency patch for Flash Player in order to fix a critical vulnerability that attackers are already taking advantage of.

The vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2016-7855 in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures database, is a use-after-free error that could lead to arbitrary code execution.

"Adobe is aware of a report that an exploit for CVE-2016-7855 exists in the wild, and is being used in limited, targeted attacks against users running Windows versions 7, 8.1 and 10," the company warned in a security advisory Wednesday.

Users are advised to upgrade to Flash Player 23.0.0.205 on Windows and Mac and to version 11.2.202.643 on Linux. The Flash Player runtime bundled with Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 10 and 8.1 will be updated automatically through those browsers' update mechanisms.

Researchers at computer giant HP have published exploit code that can be used to attack a weakness in Internet Explorer, after Microsoft refused to issue a patch.In a blog post, Dustin Childs, HP senior security content developer, said the move to publish the flaw was not out of "spite or malice," but was in accordance with its own disclosure policy.
 
The bug allows an attacker to bypass Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR), which acts as one of the many lines of defense in the popular browser. But the flaw only affects 32-bit systems, which the HP researchers said still affects millions of systems, even if many systems nowadays are 64-bit.

This past week, an auto update to my Windows XP Pro box dumped an executable on my system that has caused it to respond slowly, and with seemingly "virus" like tendencies.

Specifically: verclsid.exe is an object that is supposed to confirm the version of the Windows product being launched.

It however, just slows down everything from the simple tasks, to the more complex lanuching objects.

An example of just such a slow down is the simple act of right clicking on the desktop to adjust the properties. Doing that, with verclsid.exe active, causes anywhere from 3 to 8 seconds of delay (and at least two cases for over 30 seconds) before the property box appears.

I renamed the object, and there is no side effect from that, other than the auto update feature attempts to reload it every time I boot (and I've told it to be ignored now.)

Thought I'd just mention this.

A month or so a go I downloaded a programme (I think it was an mp3 programme) and it required Java Runtime Environment in order to work. So I downloaded that. I also seem to have Java Web Start as well.

About the same time I started to have a lot of problems with the Internet, and posted on the Web and Email forum. What happened was I could connect to the Internet but could not open any sites or my email. (Host not found and Server error messages). This was an intermitent thing and did not always happen.

A couple of days ago I could not access a certain site at all. It would start to load, then freeze and eventually crash. In desperation I just left it for a while and when I came back I found the site had loaded. It took 5 minutes. Then I noticed a strange icon in the systray. It was Java Console. I opened this and it contained a list of things which didn't mean a lot to me, for example: c:clear console window and f: finalize objects on finalization queue and many more. The icon is still in the systray, there is no exit facility. Even if I close the box, the icon is still in the systray.

GET YOUR UPDATE HAT ON, Adobe has released a Flash patch package that really deserves your attention.
This is the latest salvo from the firm, and the advice so far is to drop everything and apply it immediately. Out-of-band releases are always interesting, and the suggestion is that the fix is a rush job to deal with some particularly nasty threats.
"If you're running Adobe Flash on your Windows, Mac or Linux computer - it's time, once again, to make sure that you're running the latest version of the software. Adobe has issued a security patch for the Flash Player tackling critical security holes that could allow a malicious hacker to gain access to your computer, infect it with malware and steal your data," said security guru Graham Cluley. 
"Most of the nearly two dozen vulnerabilities patched in Adobe's latest update could be exploited to execute malicious code on victims' computers, and relate to buffer overflow flaws, memory corruption and stack corruption. Windows and Mac users are advised to update at the earliest opportunity."

Hi all
For those that just want a KDE version of Linux Mint 17 QIANA -- it's now available -- I know you can install it from the main distro but there's less hassle in using a properly built KDE version than trying to fit all the bits and pieces together - especially over the top of other GUI's.

(I like KDE - I use it in other distros too - but like all things Linux YOU have a CHOICE !!!).

Works fine as a VM too.

The Linux Mint Blog ? Blog Archive ? Linux Mint 17 ?Qiana? KDE RC released!

Cheers
jimbo

If you still have it installed, you need to get the latest version, 8 Update 31 (and remove 8 u 25): https://www.java.com/en/download/windows_manual.jsp?locale=en. (If you have the automatic update option enabled it might do it itself of course).

I still had XP until a recent motherboard failure forced me to upgrade to W 7 but I had done without Java for a year or more before that without any problems and will probably uninstall it again.

Apologies if this has already been posted elsewhere.
 

A:Critical patch for Java

Got Java 8 Update 31 yesterday.

If it detects an older version, it'll prompt you to uninstall it.

Java 7 update 11 has been releasedrel notes for Java SE 7 u 11: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/7u11-relnotes-1896856.htmlD/l link: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.htmlOracle Security Alert for CVE-2013-0422 http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/security/alert-cve-2013-0422-1896849.html"The fixes in this Alert include a change to the default Java Security Level setting from "Medium" to "High". With the "High" setting, the user is always prompted before any unsigned Java applet or Java Web Start application is run.These vulnerabilities may be remotely exploitable without authentication, i.e., they may be exploited over a network without the need for a username and password. To be successfully exploited, an unsuspecting user running an affected release in a browser will need to visit a malicious web page that leverages these vulnerabilities. Successful exploits can impact the availability, integrity, and confidentiality of the user's system."Dunno if this fully patches the zero-day or not, waiting for the BC "cavalry"

A:Java SE 7 u11 released

Here's a quote from Reuters about the "fix"..."Java security expert Adam Gowdiak, who has discovered several bugs in the software over the past year, said that the update from Oracle leaves unfixed several critical security flaws.

"We don't dare to tell users that it's safe to enable Java again," said Gowdiak, a researcher with Poland's Security Explorations."
