Back when Apple annoucned it would no longer update Java, I followed suggestions to install Java directly from Oracle.  (Not sure of the version then, but the installation is now current on version 7.x running on OS X 10.7.5.)  However, software update continues to offer updates for Java from Apple, most recently Java 2013-004.  Why?  What should be done about this?

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.5), iPhone 5
