    Oracle has released a cross-platform update for Java that addresses 17 vulnerabilities in the ubiquitous software platform.

    All 17 vulnerabilities might be abused to inject code into vulnerable systems, and all but one affect how Java Runtime Environment client software runs in browsers.

    Java 6 update 26 for Windows, Linux and Solaris is designed to plug these multiple holes and is available for download from Oracle....
