Java Update Released

June 26, 2013

Within the last couple weeks, Oracle released an update to Java.  Although you don’t run Java directly, other programs on your computer may use Java.  As a result, you may have Java but not even realize it.  Unfortunately Java has many security holes.

An update to Java was released that fixed 40 security exploits, many allowing for remote access to your computer. If you are using Java we strongly recommend you update as soon as possible.  If you don’t know how to update Java, contact Emerson Technologies and we will help take care of this.

NOTE: there are a few programs that only work with old versions of Java.  If you are using such a program, contact Emerson Technologies and we can provide an alternative that will help you remain secure.
