Java SE runs on more than 850 million PCs worldwide, and that popularity makes it an attractive target for attackers. Oracle has issued an update to Java that fixes 17 vulnerabilities in the widely used software. 9 of the 17 vulnerabilities patched Tuesday could be used to take control of an unpatched computer. Due to the threat posed by a successful attack, Oracle is strongly recommending that customers apply the fixes as soon as possible in a statement on its Website.
