Apple has released a series of updates for both their Safari browser and Java. The updates address the continuing issues with Java’s security.
The Safari updates arrive as version 6.0.4 for OS X Mountain Lion and Lion and version 5.1.9 for OS X Snow Leopard. The updates, which can be obtained through the Software Update mechanism in OS X, add new site-specific options for enabling the Java plug-in.
Full details on how to use the site-specific options are available in an associated support document.
Apple has also released updated version of Java 6. Java for OS X 2013-003 for OS X Mountain Lion and Lion users and Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 15 for OS X Snow Leopard users bring the Apple-provided Java 6 up to the latest Update 45 version of the Oracle software. Java 7 updates are via Oracle directly, and users of that version should update their installations through Oracle’s site.
