Apple releases another Java update

Published September 5th, 2012 at 10:09 PM EDT , modified September 5th, 2012 at 10:09 PM EDT

Only a week after Oracle released Java 6 update 35, Apple has turned out their updates to Java 6 update 35 for Mac users. These updates should fix security vulnerabilities that were discovered in the previous version of Java 6, and should be installed by all users of Java 6. (Java 6 is the version installed when you try to run something that requires Java and are asked if you want it installed. Java 7 must be downloaded and installed manually from the Oracle website.)

The updates available are Java for OS X 2012-005, for Lion (Mac OS X 10.7) and Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8), and Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 10, for Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6).
