CERT Releases Oracle Java 7 Security Advisory

Original release date: January 10, 2013
Last revised: January 11, 2013

The CERT Program has released Vulnerability Note VU#625617 to address a
vulnerability in Oracle Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 7 and earlier
that is currently being exploited in the wild. This vulnerability may
allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code on vulnerable systems.

US-CERT encourages users and administrators to review CERT Vulnerability
Note VU#625617 and US-CERT Alert TA13-010A. Due to the number and
severity of this and prior Java vulnerabilities, it is recommended that
Java be disabled in web browsers as described in the "Solution" section
of the US-CERT Alert and in the Oracle Technical Note "Setting the
Security Level of the Java Client."
