Submission + - Apple, Mozilla Block Vulnerable Java Plug-ins->

hypnosec writes: Following news that the Java 0-day has been rolled into exploit kits and non-availability of any patch to fix the vulnerability, Mozilla and Apple have blocked the latest versions of Java on Firefox and Mac OS X respectively. Mozilla has taken steps to protect its user base from the yet unpatched vulnerability. Mozilla has added to its Firefox add-on block-list Java 7 Update 10, Java 7 Update 9, Java 6 Update 38 and Java 6 Update 37. Similar steps have also been taken by Apple whereby it has updated its anti-malware system to only allow version 1.7.10.19 or higher thereby automatically blocking the vulnerable version 1.7.10.18.
