Apple Drops Java Amidst Security Concerns

Apple Drops Java Amidst Security Concerns

Today Apple have confirmed its latest Mac operating system update completely removes old versions of Java software from customer machines when installed.

Direct Installation

Apple announced on its support page that customer must install Java directly from the Oracle website if they require the software, which was previously installed automatically with Mac OS X.

This update uninstalls the Apple-provided Java applet plug-in from all web browsers. To use applets on a web page, click on the region labeled “Missing plug-in” to go download the latest version of the Java applet plug-in from Oracle.


The removal stems from late August when security experts in Europe discovered Java bugs which were being exploited by Hackers. It took Oracle seven days to provide an update to fix the issue.

Last Friday, two new security bugs were discovered in Java by a researcher with the Polish security firm Security Explorations, who then went on to state the obvious by advising users the removal of Java from Mac browsers reduces this security risk.
