    Apple disabled Java 6 yesterday, Jan 31, because of security flaws.  There is speculation that Apple will provide a security patch soon.  So, I recommend that you check for security updates through the Apple software update feature on your Mac on a daily basis.

    Apple disabled Java from working because of security related issues.

     

    Wait until Oracle releases an update to correct the problem.

     

    Best.

    UPDATE:

    Oracle on Friday February 1 released a new version reportedly addressing vulnerabilities seen with the last build.

    Apple disabled Java 7 through the OS X XProtect anti-malware system, requiring users to have at least version "1.7.0_10-b19" installed on their Macs. The release dated February 1 carries the designation "1.7.0_13-b20," meeting Apple's requirements.

     

    Oracle "strongly recommends" applying the CPU fixes as soon as possible, saying that the latest Critical Patch Update contains 50 new security fixes across all Jave SE products.

    This will not help users of OS X 10.6.8 since the Java 7 plugin cannot be installed on it.
