Oracle says Java update coming Tuesday

Java updateOracle is working on an update to address a flaw in its Java software.
The company says it will release a patch that will fix 86 vulnerabilities in Java 7 on Tuesday.

The Department of Homeland Security last week said computer users should disable the program in web browsers because hackers were using a zero-day vulnerability to attack computer systems. Criminals were using the flaw to stealthily install malware on the computers of users who visit compromised websites.

The problem, which affects Oracle Java 7 update 10 and earlier, can allow an untrusted Java applet to escalate its privileges, without requiring code signing.

Java, which is running on 850 million computers, is a computer language that lets programmers write software using just one set of codes for computers running Windows, Apple OS X and Linux. Internet browsers use it to access web content and computers and other devices use it to run a plethora of programs.
