[Link] Oracle Urges Removal of Older Versions of Java for Security

Posted 19 May 2012 - 04:35 PM


An excerpt:


Oracle, in making Java Platform, Standard Edition (SE) 7 the default runtime environment for Java this week, is emphasizing that older versions of Java be removed for security purposes.

The company recommends updating to the latest version of Java, which contains the most recent features, fixes, and performance improvements. Along with that, older versions should be removed. "Keeping old and unsupported versions of Java on your system presents a serious security risk," Oracle said on Java.com. "Removing older versions of Java from your system ensures that Java applications will run with the most up-to-date security and performance improvements on your system."
