I don't trust the news meida as much as I do this community when it comes to accuracy and latest developments.......

 

How affected would our Apple products be to this intrusion?


MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

There is no patch for the vulnerability yet. Fortunately, Apple and Mozilla acted quickly and blocked vulnerable versions of Java:

This happened before any Mac malware was known to have been dropped via the vulnerability, and will probably prevent it entirely. Only time will tell, though.

Nothing so far from either Apple or Oracle.

 

Best.

I haven't re-enabled Java, so I didn't really keep up.

The snippets I read seemed to indicate it was a Java 7 vulnerability.

 

On another thread I was trying to help with, another poster stated that XProtect has disabled the java plugin, again. No info on whether a patch was available.
