Oracle patches 21 vulnerabilities in Java

In its February Critical Patch Update (CPU) released this week, Oracle is patching 21 vulnerabilities across its popular Java SE and Java for Business products. In its release, the company said 19 of the Java flaws affecting the Java Runtime Environment could be exploited remotely in network attacks without needing a username and password. Eight of the patches come with the highest rating on the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS). Oracle is "strongly" urging customers to apply the new fixes, as well as previous patches, as soon as possible. – GM
