    Java 6 users vulnerable to zero day flaw, experts warn

    The final fix for the out-of-date Java 6 platform was released by Oracle in April. The bug, CVE-2013-2463, is rated as "critical," and is described below:

    "Unspecified vulnerability in the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) component in Oracle Java SE 7 Update 21 and earlier, 6 Update 45 and earlier, and 5.0 Update 45 and earlier, and OpenJDK 7, allows remote attackers to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability via unknown vectors related to 2D."
