APPLE-SA-2012-06-12-1 Java for OS X 2012-004 and Java for
Mac OS X 10.6 Update 9

Java for OS X 2012-004 and Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 9 is now
available and addresses the following:

Java
Available for: *Mac OS X v10.6.8, Mac OS X Server v10.6.8,
OS X Lion v10.7.4, OS X Lion Server v10.7.4
Impact: *Multiple vulnerabilities in Java
Description: *Multiple vulnerabilities exist in Java, the most
serious of which may allow an untrusted Java applet to execute
arbitrary code outside the Java sandbox. Visiting a web page
containing a maliciously crafted untrusted Java applet may lead to
arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the current user.
These issues are addressed by updating to Java version 1.6.0_33.
Further information is available via the Java website at
<http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/releasenotes-136954.html>

is updated daily, as needed. Users with out of date Java
installations may re-enable Java by updating the installed version of
Java using Software Update.
