JAVA Updates

SUN has an update available for the Java Runtime Environment versions 1.3.1, 1.4.2, 5.0 and 6.0. When I looked at the fix list for 6, I really couldn’t tell if this update was necessary from a security perspective or not. After reviewing an article at Techworld, I’ve decided I need to get this on the update schedule.
Although Sun does not assign threat scores or label its advisories with terms such as “critical” or “low,” Danish bug tracking vendor Secunia collectively tagged the five advisories and their 11 patches as “highly critical,” its second-highest ranking.
