    I think 14 was the 'other' buggy one. ;)

    Have you read anything about Java sealing the latest exploit on this version?

    No, I haven't. But, seeing so many people insisting on finding Java exploits, and giving hackers ideas, I'm willing to bet someone will find some new ones soon, and Oracle's going to release Update 16, and so on... :rolleyes: :D ;)

    Java 6 Update 41

    Java 7 Update 15


    were both released.

    It's my understanding that version 6 will be phased out soon, so I'm surprised that it's still being updated.

    I'm trying to convince everyone here to switch to version 7.

    I still don't see why Java 6 would still be needed or even know why some people are still using it. I've been using Java 7 ever since it was first released and it has always worked flawlessly. :confused:

    I've seen a few threads where both Java 6 and Java 7 are installed, so I usually advise them to uninstall Java 6.

    If both versions are installed, Java 7 seems to take over anyway.

    I still find websites using Java. I'll keep mine, but it'll only be enabled when I decide (Java > Security > Security Level > High (recommended)). :)
