Java 7 Update 6

What is Java 7 Update 6?

The default security level for Java applets and web start applications has been increased from "Medium" to "High". This affects the conditions under which unsigned (sandboxed) Java web applications can run. Previously, as long as you had the latest secure Java release installed applets and web start applications would continue to run as always. With the "High" setting the user is always warned before any unsigned application is run to prevent silent exploitation. In the 7u10 release of the JRE, a slider was added to the Security tab of the Java Control Panel (JCP). This slider allows you to set the level of security of apps that run in the browser (by using Java Plugin) to Very High, High, Medium, or Low. In some cases, when a standalone copy of JavaFX 2.x has also been installed, the Security tab of the JCP does not display the security level slider.

About  (from Oracle)

This releases brings in key security features and bug fixes. Oracle strongly recommends that all Java SE 7 users upgrade to this release. JavaFX 2.2.4 is now bundled with the JDK on Windows, Mac and Linux x86/x64.
