One month after recent Java update, 7 percent of users patched


Websense said Tuesday that Java users aren't getting much better at patching the software.

The security firm had revealed in March that 94 percent of users were currently running a version of Java that is vulnerable to at least one exploit aimed at the software.

Shortly after the update was distributed, an exploit taking advantage of one of the vulnerabilities fixed went live.
