  1. 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>

    CVE-2012-1725

    Java
    Available for:  Mac OS X v10.6.8, Mac OS X Server v10.6.8
    Impact:  The Java browser plugin and Java Web Start are deactivated
    if they remain unused for 35 days
    Description:  As a security hardening measure, the Java browser
    plugin and Java Web Start are deactivated if they are unused for 35
    days. Installing this update will automatically deactivate the Java
    browser plugin and Java Web Start. Users may re-enable Java if they
    encounter Java applets on a web page or Java Web Start applications
    by clicking the region labeled "Inactive plug-in" on a web page. This
    security measure is also available for OS Lion systems if the prior
    update "Java for OS X 2012-003" was not installed.

    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:  The Java browser plugin and Java Web Start are deactivated
    if they do not meet the criteria for minimum safe version
    Description:  As a security hardening measure, the Java browser
    plugin and Java Web Start are deactivated if they do not meet the
    criteria for minimum safe version. The minimum safe version of Java
    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 Users with out of date Java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.

    Note: These updates include the security content from Java for
    OS X 2012-003 and Java for Mac OS X 10.6 Update 8.
