java security hole actually appears since Aug/Sept during 2012. But it seems that it does not totally fixed. Up till now, it seems that the issue still exist and public announced.
The US-CERT group issued an alert saying that “Java 7 Update 10 and earlier versions of the software contain an unspecified vulnerability that can allow a remote, attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system.”
The report only focus on OS platform, how about the android mobile platform? i think it may also effect since the “apk” – the android application is compiled by Java….
if it is the case, we have to take care on downloading and using 3rd party mobile application.
Hope Java would provide a solution to fix on that, otherwise there are lots of web application have effect on that.
