    You are protected against the latest Java vulnerability
    You may have recently seen some of the extensive news coverage, including statements from the United States Department of Homeland Security, regarding a vulnerability in Java. Java is both a language and a platform to run websites and programs used by many computer users, both on the PC and Mac operating systems. This vulnerability leaves millions of computers open to malware attacks and can lure online traffic to virus-infected websites.
    Rest assured, because you have a Norton security software product installed on your computer, you’re protected against the Java bug (CVE-2013-0422), as long as you have not disabled the automatic updates feature.
    We also recommend that you apply Oracle’s recently released security patch and make sure you are running the most updated version of Java.

    Thank you for being a valued Norton customer.

Java 8, 32 and 64 bit
I use both 32 and 64 bit browsers so I had Java in both versions up to v7. Now I installed Java 8, 64 bit, then tried to install the 32 bit version. The installer, however, halted for I 'already had it'. Does it mean that from v8 the 64 bit Java can also be used by the 32 bit browsers?
